    Our condolences to the Hurst family for their loss. I will always remember seeing Charles working on a neighbor’s car that had broken down on our street in the rain. Along with many others, I would bring whatever was broken to his garage for help. That is the man he was, always willing to help others. Thanks for being a great person and great neighbor! The Michelson family.

    We are sad to know that we will not be seeing Charles as he drives by in one of his special vehicles. Always a greeting or a wave; one of the founding fathers in our neighborhood. Condolences to the family. Hold onto those fond memories.
