Charles; You will be missed but not forgotten. Who will keep the campfires going? I'm sure you will be there to guide whoever it is. My favorite scripture is Matt 7V7 A-S-K
You have done all of these things. God Bless, Ron

Though it has been awhile since I saw you last, you always had a smile on your face and a kind word to say. At times you could be a little ornery, but that is what made you the great man you were and always will be. You will be greatly missed by many. We will see you again one day, God must have needed someone to repair his mowers for him. He picked a great person to do it. Love and miss you.

Ruth and family
You all have my deepest smpathy.
We certainly will miss him his love
for his family and dedication to his
job was unmatched. It was a pleasuring
knowing Mr. Charlie!

God saw you getting tired
A cure was not to be,
So He put his arms around you
And whispered, "Come with Me"

With tearful eyes we watched you
And saw you fade away,
Although we loved you dearly
We could not make you stay.

A golden heart stopped beating
Your tender hands at rest,
God took you home to prove to us
He only takes the best.

Forever in our hearts
Charles Eugene Bemiller Jr.

My sympathy to the family on the loss of a good man. I always enjoyed working side by side with Charlie at Tech. He is gone from our sites but will rejoice in Heaven when we see him again. RIP Charlie.
