Dear Ms Mae, Barbara, and Janet, At times like this, the word friend seems so insufficient to describe how much Mr. Charlie has meant to our family. I always knew I could count on his big smile! You're continually in my thoughts and prayers.

Hello, my grandparents were Milton and Maude Willoughby who lived on Crawford illegal Rd in the apartments. I believe the Poland were neighbors. We used to go spend summers with the Willoughbys and I remember playing with the Pilands next door. My father was Albert Willoughby. He left Union Point early to go to the war and made a 31 yr career with Air Force. Very fond memories of coming to Union Point.
