Randall & Lydia Umana, March 11, 2019 Primo! You were always a joy to visit with when we would go to Dallas. I remember the last time we visited. The look on your face was timeless, when I told you how my parents met because of yours and how we were related from both ends. We will miss you dearly, but very blessed to have had you within our lives. Love to you and the rest of the family always.
Margarita Perez Jackson, March 11, 2019 Becky, LeighAnn, Kelly & the rest of the Betancourt family. I am so sorry for y'all's loss. I will remember Charlie with lots of smiles. He was such a great man, I am just sorry he suffered that horrible disease. You are all in my Thoughts & Prayers. MONICA CARRILLO, March 11, 2019 Aunt Becky, LeighAnn, and Kelly: It’s times like these that make living so far away, so difficult. I’ll always remember the “Prankster” better known as “Uncle Charlie”. Many, many Thanksgivings and Christmases were spent at y’all’s house, and Easters at Grandma and Grandpa Hendrickson‘s. He was always the one with the jokes, his eyes would crinkle as he burst out with his manly, yet giggly laughter. Oh the memories!! While I’m so sorry for your loss, I do hope you all take some comfort in knowing that he is finally whole, and healed, resting at The Master’s feet, until you meet again. Anthony, Jada, Layne & Greyson
