Pops would put seed and peanuts out for the birds, then complain that the squirrels were eating it. So, he would sit on the back porch with his BB gun and shoot at the squirrels. I told him I didn’t want bb’s in my brand new fence. He guaranteed me he wasn’t hitting the fence. Sure enough, as I painted, I found many holes with the bb’s . Lesson learned: keep the BB gun away from Pops!

Mr. Moore was such a sweet man. I was blessed to know him through church at Tanner and to help him as a Hearing Aid specialist. He was a great friend and patient. So sad to see you go... but we will see you again soon. Rest in Peace.

Sonny, I know you are playing your Guitar and singing for the Angels and all our loved ones that got to Heaven before you! I'm sure they have welcomed your smiling face with open arms. We will miss your kind gentle soul, but I'm sure we will meet again someday. Until then....Play On !

Our fondest memory of Pop is spending the weekend with him, son Al and DIL Janell one weekend coming from Georgia. Early in morning we all sat outside for coffee and conversation and Pop pulled out a BB gun! Well the next few hours were chasing squirrels away from the bird seed! Lots of laughs and fun times! We rejoice in his reaching the final end of his life’s journey and look forward to our reunion.

I so enjoyed the times that Mr. Charles was able to attend our worship services at FBC Tanner. We almost always had an opportunity to visit for a few minutes either before or after the service. His wit and conversation were always enjoyable to me. It was apparent that he had a great love for his children and an appreciation for their care. I always admired the care that Barbie, Al and Janell sacrificially provided on his behalf. It is comforting to know that all that human hands can do was done for him and the faith that was evident as his life was committed to the Lord's hands. He will be missed.

Pops,
I only have good memories of you and cherish them dearly. So many family dinners, holidays and birthdays spent together that will never be forgotten. You always knew how to light up a room with a big smile and a belly laugh. I’ll pour a glass of wine for you on the other side. I love you so much, always.

There are so many special memories, but my favorite ones are of family get-togethers where Uncle Sonny would play his guitar and all of us would sing... You are going to be dearly missed, but I know there is going to be a wonderful reunion one day. Love you Uncle Sonny, RIP.

My cousin Sonny was one of the most gentle, loving and kindest people I have ever had the pleasure of knowing. One of my fondest memories was of sitting on the floor in my Aunt Edith's living room and listening to Sonny play his guitar when he was in his early teens. At that time he was learning to use a bar on the strings while the guitar laid in his lap. His talent with music and writing will last always throughout our family. I pray for God to ease the pain of his loss for all of his family. I will miss his wonderful smile.
