I’m so sorry for your loss of such a great man! “Papaw Charlie” had a way of always making you feel welcome. I’ll never forget as a child, he would give me crackers with port wine cheese, at family gatherings. I hope each of you cherish a lifetime of wonderful memories that will console you during your time of grief.

Love,
Holly (Rasar) Byrd and family
