Charles was the sweetest man ever! It was an honor to sit with Charles and get to know him. He loved his family, friends, and even the nurses who had to give him shots. He would say he was sorry if anything unpleasant had to be done. What a sweetheart! He enjoyed making the rounds at Martin Boyd, shaking hands with the other residents and give his signature smile. He will be dearly missed by all. sincerely, Kathy Jernigan
