Jo & Family: I am so sad about Charles’s death. I just heard from Brenda about this, I have tried to find you with no luck but I will never forget him. When we were kids, the family would drive from Tulsa to our house for summer & Christmas. We would get all the playtime in that we could! These were special times for me. The last time I saw him was when he brought Uncle Wilson to Lindale to see me. This was also such a wonderful time! I would love to see you and talk to you!
My love, Clarlynn

I went to school with his sisters Mary and Kathy-I remember how proud his mother Grace was of his accomplishments. I only got to meet him a few times. Praying for his family and friends. RIP Charles. Gone, but not forgotten

What can I say about this man? He was a great father not only to his children but those of us who were not. He welcomed us into his home growing up and always with a smile. I remember coming over before school and eating breakfast at the table while he read the paper or talking while waiting on Lisa to get ready to leave. He has always had a special place in heart and always will. He will be truly missed! I'm so thankful God blessed us with him in our lives. Love you always! Angela Kyles (Branch)
