For some reason I was compelled to Google Charles Vogel's name. I am deeply sadden by the results - Sir Charles has passed. I want all that reads this and know the Vogel family was a God sent. I was very fortunate to met Charles and Mary through their Daughter. She also was a God Sent. I was a young college student starting my adult life and the Vogel's assisted in ways that was everlasting - I thank you. I recall Charles would share his views on how important it is to be a person not afraid hard work. I can feel his sincerity which stepped up my respect for him, because I can see the fruits of his hard labor - A wonderful family, a caring man that touched many that knew him, and that he did for you definitely made you want to pay it forward. With much Love for the Vogel's and wishes that Charles were still with us, I express my deepest sympathy for the loss of Sir Charles(Chuck). Nate
