Thank you Charles for all the laughs and great conversations over the years. You always greeted me with a big smile and a strong cup of coffee. I will always remember our long talks especially about big tomatoes

Chubby was such a nice guy, what a tragic loss... My thoughts & prayers go out to his family during this sad time. May you find peace & understanding through the coming days. He was certainly taken way too soon, but God only chooses the best when he is ready.

Shirley and Jesse,

I am so sorry for your loss. Chubby was a wonderful Christian and family man and will be greatly missed by so many. I enjoyed all the softball years and kids church on Wednesday nights. He was quite a character! You guys and Ronnie and Pat taught me so much about growing up in my Christian faith and I will be forever grateful to you all for that. We had so much fun at church, concerts, amusement parks, Christmas caroling, Bible School. You, Chubby, and Jesse will always feel like part of my family although our paths have grown apart. My heart goes out to you guys. Please know that I am sending prayers and lots of hugs your way. Lean on the Lord and he will ease your pain and suffering. Hold on to all of the good memories and know that one day you will meet again. Love you both so much!!
