Charles was a very special friend to me. Always a smile and word of encouragement when I’d see him. He and Mary sent some sweet cards to me and they are true treasures. I think we all could learn from those two...be an encourager and a sweet friend cheering for others in a quiet way. What a blessing God gave me when He introduced them to me. Well done, Charles
