We will always remember the wonderful trips we made together, but more than anything the love that we have for each other.

Every week, with no exception; Charles expressed his appreciation of worship at Faith Lutheran. He treasured the message and the music as well. He was "tuned-in".
He has gone on to worship as we can only imagine! (we miss you terribly!)

Charles will truly be missed by our congregation. He was one of a kind. He always asked us what time we got to church to get our back row seats.
