    The world lost an outstanding husband, father, grandfather and brother when Charlie left his earthly home. Charlie was one of the hardest working men I have known, but always had time for a smile and some kind words for everyone. My sons had the pleasure of spending valued time on the farm in Dunstable helping plant Christmas trees and enjoying the environment of farm living. He always had a vision of things he wanted to accomplish and never shied away from daunting tasks. We will miss you, Charlie.

    Ferrari Family,
    I am so sorry to hear of your loss. My family and I have so many wonderful memories of time spent with Charlie and your amazing family. Not to long ago my Mom brought out the picture of mud football at the farm, and I still break a smile on how fun that day was. Christmas eve’s at the farmhouse where I have never seen so much food. So many 4th of July parties spent at your family’s lake house and I believe we helped plant the first Christmas Trees! The list goes on and on. All of those had Charlie right along side having as much fun as the rest of us. It goes without saying how much he will be missed. Maybe he and my Dad are now sitting discussing their antique treasures. Take care and if we can help in any way, please just let us know.
    Karl and Family, Nancy, Paul and Lisa Schumacher
