To the Eberhart family. My thoughts and prayers are with you at this time of loss. I worked with Debra at the lottery and found the obituary in the Saturday morning Indianapolis paper. As you go through the time of loss and fond memories please know that others are silently supporting you.

I send sincere condolences to Donna, the children, and grandchildren. I learned about Charles’s death from a cousin of my father. The cousin is John Snepp, who kindly sends me news of my Eberhart family. My father was also, like Charles, born in the big red brick house built by Jefferson Eberhart, who was Charles’ great grandfather and also mine. Donna and Charles generously invited us in one afternoon (myself and cousin John Snepp) to see the house that my father had often told me about. My father, George Eberhart, was the son of Arnaldo, brother of Charles’s grandfather John. My brother, also named George, has four living children, all in Texas, and I have three. They all join me in this message of condolence.
