Charlie was a good man with a heart of solid gold. He gave a couple of 15 year old newlyweds a chance with housing, employment, fatherly advice, and a life long friendship. Memories will be in our hearts and minds as long as we live. Mary & John Larrabee

Earle Watson

You've always been my Uncle, but we were raised more like brothers. There were more good times had together than anyone should ever be allowed and it always puts a smile on my face when I think back on them. I've posted pictures of your beloved Welchville, The Wheeler Farm in Shelburne, NH and your parents in a Model T Ford on the Meadows Bridge in Shelburne, NH when they were courting, so you can take a gander anytime you have a hankering. I will miss you, but do take a certain amount of comfort that you are finally at peace.
