    Charlie Morgan was a great man. The Lyons family will never forget him. He was not a relative, but closer than most relatives. He was the best friend of my uncle Tom Lyons. Charlie and Tom grew up together on School Street in Woburn. Tom and the Lyons family (Patrick, Delia, Ted) moved to Foxboro in 1934 to start a greenhouse business down there (as Charlie would say). That didn’t separate the two friends. In my growing-up years, the Morgans were forever visiting Tom, and Tom and family frequently stopped by Charlie’s house in Woburn. Often after a trip to Faneuil Hall in Boston with a load of tomatoes. We loved those visits. I have heard many “Charlie Morgan stories,” all of them good. He leaves a fine example to all whose lives he touched including mine. Dear Charlie – may you rest in peace!

  2. Charlie was our beloved mailman until he retired. I would see him every so often at events at the Woburn Senior Center and although I would always say my name was Jane he would always call me Mrs. Linn.
    He was a wonderful, peaceful man.

  3. I worked for many years with Charlie at the Post Office. He was a great guy, funny and kind. Charlie was very proud of his family. My sympathy to all the Morgan Family.
