Thanks for the article about Charles- he will be missed! The intersection of Nelson and Charleston is also a school commute route for Fairmeadow students. It is the neighborhood elementary school for this area.

Gee, I drive by this guy everyday and we wave to each other! Guess it had to happen sometime, but he will be missed,

Seeing him in the morning on the way to work always made me smile. He was so kind to everyone, and had a magical way of getting cars to slow down. We will miss you!

I'm so sorry to hear Mr. Gater is retiring! I work right by his intersection, so I see him often, which means that we chat often--you don't walk by without a quick, friendly conversation. It always cheers my day.

Best wishes to you in the next stage of your life. Atlanta is about to get a burst of sunshine.
