  2. Dear lovely MOON Family, Jana, myself and the whole Freihoefer family from Germany would like to express our deepest sympathy to you. We will all keep Charlie in our best memories. He seemed to be always so pleased and cheerful. We will miss him so much. We are proud to be your special German friends and hope to strengthen you a little bit with the following poem from Linda E. Knight: MEMORIES KEEP THOSE WE LOVE CLOSE TO US FOREVER Although words seem to say so little, we hope they help in some way to ease the sense of loss that you\’re experiencing these days. Hold fast to your memories, to all of the cherished moments of the past, to the blessings and the laughter, the joys and the celebrations, the sorrow and the tears. They all add up to a treasure of fond yesterdays that you shared and spent together, and they keep the one you loved close to you in spirit and thought. The special moments and memories in your life will never change. They will always be in your heart, today and forevermore. With love from all of us Wolfgang senior, Marica, Jens, Wolfgang junior, Sebastian and Jana.

I spoke to Mr. Moon (Charlie) only a short time ago at the Branford China Buffet and we spoke of old times at the Mansfield Grove Marina. I was so sad to hear of his passing. My prayers and thoughts are with you. Sincerely, Tony.
