From Mike Stewart
I just spoke to Merlyn. Our friend Charlie passed from this life this morning at 4:00 Austin time. There is, of course, a heavy burden of grief that Merlyn is carrying but she is strengthened by her faith and the knowledge that Charlie lived large and well. He did a good job of preparing and protecting his family.
Their son, Michael Keith, is stranded in Chicago by the blizzard and their daughter, Christie, is in Tempe. Merlyn will be making arrangements for services this afternoon and will advise when she knows more.
May the Lord bless you and keep you.
The Lord make His face shine upon you and be gracious unto you;
may the Lord lift up His countenance upon you, and give you peace.
Our prayers and thoughts are for Charlie, Merlyn and the entire Rodenberg family.
