I am sorry for your loss, I only saw Uncle Charley and your dad at family funerals. Your grandfather was my grandfather’s bother, he died in a car crash in 1938 and my mother and grandmother moved after his death to Sedalia. Prayers for your family during this tough time. Sincerely, Marla Sellers Tallman
