Charlie and Martina loved to do everything together. They loved riding bikes through town, selling wares at the flea market, playing in the Special Olympics, and going to church together.
My stepson and step-daughter-in-law (?) live in Evansville and knew the couple from when Nicole worked for the agency that handled the home for mentally challenged young adults where they were living at the time.
They both fell in love with each other and wanted to get married but the agency's rules forbade that for whatever reason, so they moved into their own home and tied the knot.
Art told my wife Lisa, and keep in mind this is third or fourth hand information, that a day or two before the explosion, a friend had installed a new gas water heater in their home. When they returned home from their jobs that day, they opened the door and flipped on a light switch, causing the explosion and killing them.
