  1. Tuna/Mike-

    Deepest sympathy and condolences to you and your family. It’s been a long time since we’ve had the opportunity to hang out, have a cold one, and maybe break a rule or two. As our fathers were “room mates” for a while prior to their final journey, here’s to both of them. May God comfort y’all throughout this time with all of the great memories you have. Personally, thanks for helping Bea and Gene out when your visits crossed paths.

  2. Heaven sure did get a great man. We loved both Charlie and Diane. Deepest sympathies to Renee, Charlie, and Mike. Both Charlie and Diane loved you three and always talked about how you kids were always there for them. Prayers and warm thoughts for you all during this difficult time.

  3. Our thoughts and prayers are with the Watson family at this time.

    Dan Barnes, Duluth, MN
