Thanks Robert,
I will pass on your thoughts at the services over the next few days. I am gathering all of the wonderful thoughts and prayers I have found on the internet over the last week. My Dad has been a positive influence in many people's lives; not just his family's.
I am lucky I could call him Dad and Friend, but I had no idea how many other people had thought of him the same way...

Thanks for your note, Charlie.

I had the pleasure of speaking with your father a few times for stories I was working on for the Inline Planet. I always found him to be generous with his time and a great champion of the sport.

My condolences to your family.

Yours,
Robert
