My dad (Joe Ranes) and uncle (Jim Ranes) grew up with Charlie in McKinney back in the 30's. I finally got to meet Charlie in the early 1990's. I loved the stories they told about growing up in McKinney and was fascinated by their tales. My deepest sympathy to the families. Jimmie D Ranes, May 12, 2010 Thoughts and prayers are sent your way.

Ernest and Lois Wigington, May 7, 2010 Bobbie, just happened to be looking on the website and saw that your father passed away. Charley had good memories of him back in the day when we were in sororiety together and they would have their poker nights. We are sorry for your loss.
