I did not know Charlie Seibert but am related to him in some way. My mother, Jean, was a Seibert and I know my sister Karin Knell, spoke to him on occasion. From what my sister told me and from what Kim Mansberger has told me, Charlie was a dear, sweet, good man. Karin loved him and enjoyed talking to him. I wish I would have gotten to know him as well. My sister passed away suddenly three years ago and Charlie was there at her viewing. Karin would have liked that. When I heard Charlie was ill I prayed for him. Now he is at peace and Karin is talking to him once again. My deepest sympathies to all his children and family. I know this dear man will be missed by so many.

Thanks, Patricia. I think I may have met your mother at a Seibert reunion. And thank you for the card you sent to my dad when he was in Masonic Village. I read it to him and we hung it on his wall. He appreciated all the love that surrounded him.

I have so many wonderful memories with Charlie Seibert. Charlie was like family to.me and my family. He had alot of love to go around. Charlie and my wonderful father Ken Hixon were best friends for along time. When my father passed away eight years ago Charlie was their for me and you could say he was like another father to me and I am so thankful we shared all those wonderful times together. Charlie would always give of his self and never expect anything in return. He was one of the most wonderful people in my life .Charlie was always helping others even if he didn't know you he would give you his time. I learned alot from Charlie and I will miss him so much but I know he is in heaven looking down on me and that makes me happy. Kim Mansberger and Family.

I am so sorry to hear of the death of Charlie. I sort of remember him from a Seibert Family Reunions. My maiden name was Seibert and I have lost contact with the whole family. I would like to get back in touch and share the good memories we have. I pray for Charlie's family and all those who knew and loved him. May they find peace.
