We were so sorry to hear of Mr. Diller's passing. Warren and I were talking about the many years he worked with Charles and how he enjoyed doing carpentry work for him in many homes in the local area. "Charlie" as he was called, , was a very pleasant man to work for and with. He will be missed.

I am saddened to hear about Charlie passing. Over the years he was always a great mentor, neighbor and friend. I will always have wonderful memories of him. Charlie was the type of man and father that I always wanted to be. I send love to the family, you are truly blessed.

Hello Cousins, Shari, Rick, Kathy and Lori, we send our condolences and prayers that God will provide you peace and comfort as you process the passing and separation of your beloved father. I have good memories of being in your home as an adolescent youth hanging out between morning and evening church services. I remember that your mom made the best mashed potatoes. And I remember your dad saying one time, "I don't know who those teenage boys were who were talking and carrying on in the back of the church this morning, but I'm telling you boys (referring to Rick and I) that if you boys act like that when you start sitting in the back of the church, that I will come back there and sit beside you."
I hope the good memories that you have will bless and inspire you in these days of grief, and for years to come.
God bless you! Earl and Barb Eby
