I am so thankful for the time I had with this great man. If anyone has memories to share-please do. Even though we were together for 27 months we weren’t ready to end our romance. He lives on in my memories and in my heart I will always be his wife. We met June 2, 1972 and met again May 5, 2015. He was always my soulmate. I love him and I miss him.

I am so sorry for your loss. You all will be in my prayers.

Sorry to hear of your loss. I hadn't seen Charlie since high school but often wondered what had become of many of my friends. He was and probably continued to be a great person, husband, dad, grandpa and was a good role model. It does not surprise me that he went in to the military. ROTC and Industrial Arts at school was what he was all about. I'm sure your family will miss him. May God comfort you in this time.

Sorry to hear of your loss. Charles and I went through school together. From Mill Creek elementary to Southside High School. We even went into the army together, along with Jimmy Franklin. I would always text him during the Christmas New Years season. He always text back with kind words. I know he will be missed. I pray you will be blessed and strong during this great loss.
