Knew Mr. Christy while I growing up and he always seemed to dislike me. Never felt comfortable around him.

Seriously?? Those kind of comments keep to yourself.

I don’t know what would make you decide that you needed to type this, hit post and send it onto the comment section of Charlie’s obituary. This is not even close to being appropriate. You know his whole entire grieving family can see this, right? Do the right thing and please delete this. Thank you.

Dear Carol...sending my condolences to you and your family. Will miss Charlie's sense of humor and his "famous hamburg sliders" at the various holiday functions. Never easy to say exactly how people feel and hard to put things in writing. Just know that he will be missed. Dick Zarilla

Charlie was such an upbeat person all the time. He coached little league and was a really positive role model. Our boys were friends through high school and we became very fond of Charlie and Carol. Our deepest sympathies to you Carol, Matthew, Sean, Patrick and Brian. He will be missed. Sincerely The Crist Family

I only knew Charles for a short time. I had the pleasure of transporting him to his treatments. He was always so happy, We had some things in common like going to the beach. He told me to live every day, As if it was my last. He is now with the Lord, Watching down over us all. My Prayers to his family.
