    Mrs. Faye, I was sorry to hear of the passing of Charlie. He was my friend for a long time.

    I’m so sorry for your loss. Theron was a great fella, and was in my mind just a few days ago. All my best to Faye, Shelley, and family.

    To the family and friends, my sincere regrets and expression of sympathy on the passing of Theron, who Shelley told me was quite ill. I enjoyed the opportunity to meet and know Theron many years ago.
