I am so sorry to hear about Charlie's death. I did not know him but I go to church with his sister, Sandy and I knew both his mother and his father. They are one of the finest families I have ever known. It was an honor to know them. May God be with his entire family and give you peace and comfort during this time of sorrow. I will be praying for you all.

He was such a great man, husband and wonderful uncle. I missed not being able to see him more and have him meet my son. He met my little FyreBuggie when she was a year old. That was the last time I have seen him. I will miss him dearly but he will be watching over us. I love you Uncle
