A couple of years ago he sent me a autographed copy of his book, and a wonderful letter. I have read this book
over and over again. I told Charlie this was three books in one. a history book, a biography. an a art book. Many
great paintings that tell a story. He was a great artist, a great person, and an American hero. Wounded in World
War II. Charlie died this past November 13. He will be missed.
