- Mrs. Peach and family, I am sorry for the loss of a great person. Charlie
Peach always had a smile and gave me a big hug each time he came into our
office--even years ago when he was working and later as a patient. He will
always have a great place in my heart. You and your family will remain in my
prayers. We know Mr. Peach is in a great place now, with no pain, and he is
a Great Angel with that wonderful smile and hug of his!!!
