Three years at CWM made me a real traditionalist, and I keep remembering Bob Parkinson saying, "I want the people to see what the circus used to be, not what it is today. That's what this site is about!

My dear Charlie,how we will all miss you and your sense of humor.You handed me a roll of coins and said "I found this and it had your name on it" I still have this special roll of Pennies And I intend to keep it always.
I know the lord has you pretty busy right now taking care of his Circus train. He knew he needed the best.
You are forever in my thoughts.
Penny
