Our condolences to the Smith family. Charlie was the epitome of Masonry in all aspects of it. It was my pleasure to have been associated with him while I resided in UT for many years. Had not know that he was from Glen Rock, PA which town I just drove through about a month ago on a country drive in that area. So long to a fellow native of the great State of PA. Rest in peace Charlie.Bill "Curly Bill" Long - former El Kalah Clown - and wife Lorraine
