"Rosemary & Family, I am so sorry to hear of Charles' passing.  I am a friend of your sister, Lynn.  I was Patricia Edwards.  Lynn and I were across the hall from each other in Day Dorm at Campbell College. I re-established contact with Lynn through Facebook.  I met Charles at the Food Lion pharmacy in Henderson while living there taking care of my parents.  He was such a nice kind man.  I told him that I knew Lynn and talked with him several times.  I grew up in Henderson but have lived in Cary since 1973.  I have relatives in Oxford who I have seen you are friends with on Facebook.  Again, I am so sorry.  I will be thinking of you and your family and remembering you in my prayers."
