Amazing news Charles Neils gofundme is much closer to its goal someone has donated $5,000
Thanks to that individual and to everyone who has donated, we are much closer to the $10,000 goal, I hope we can get to our goal if you can please make a donation.

Here is an article from 2015 showing a connection between Charles and the very generous donor, John Peckham. There is even a photo with both Charles and John:

Thanks for that link Chuck ,I was wondering who John Peckham was, I contacted a number of clubs and business folks I knew Charles had contact with to help with the gofundme but I don’t believe my reaching out had anything to do with John’s donation. It doesn’t matter who or how as long as Charles’s family gets the help they need. Bless all those who have helped and still will.
Without Jeff Fleisher so much of all of the good things that have helped Charles and his family may not have happened,Jeff went through the last months of Charles’s health problems and even before being the epitome of a great friend, Thanks Jeff for your care and love towards our dear friend.
