We were sorry to hear of Charles passing. We know he is in a better place. Working with him in Canton and then in Greenville was a pleasure. He and Eloise were a jewel. We always kept in touch because we had the same birthday. He is now with Eloise and Jesus as promised.

To the family of Charles: We're so sorry to hear of the loss of your beloved father, and grandfather. Charles was a dear friend we had the opportunity of knowing from West Side Baptist Church. We have had him in our thoughts and prayers for a very long time. Now, you; his family will be in our thoughts and prayers. Charles was a wonderful Christian man loved by everyone and will be missed by all. Just remember, he's back with Eloise and Jesus Christ in heaven now and how happy he must be now in his new body. Jesus is there for each of you. Put your faith and trust in Him for all the hard times ahead. God bless all of you.
