Sherry and Family,
We are so sorry to hear about Charles passing, even though lately we haven't spent much time together, he was one of my best friends when we were growing up, we did everything together. I remember when he bought his first car, it was a 64 Chevelle with a 409 engine. He loved that car. Charles and 4 more of our friends went to join the Army together on the Buddy System and he is the one who talked me into joining. But when we arrived at the induction center in Atlanta, he didn’t have to go.
He will be missed by all that knew him, especially all his car buddies from the Cruzers. I tried to find a number to call you, but didn’t have any luck.
Sherry our prayer is that GOD will Bless and Comfort you and your Family during this time and forever.

Sherry and family, My thoughts and prayers are with you. Charles was always upbeat, funny, and usually could manage to say something that could get him in trouble. I will miss that. Memories date back to when Clif and I were kids and you and Charles were dating. That's a long time. He will still bring a smile to my face each time I think of him. Love you.
