My brother from class of 97' sorry I'm just now finding out. Gone too soon, Godspeed old friend, may you do all the things you have always wanted to do.

No two finer people than Ms. Janet and Charlie. Both at home with the Lord within a few months of each other. Carol Sue's and my prayer's are surrounding the family. We loved both of them dearly. But now with the Lord, they are at peace and together. Thomas & Carol Sue Sterling

Charlie will be missed by me and many friends that he made during his short period of time on earth. My first thought when I heard of his death, that he is happy now that he is with his mother in heaven. Praying God be with each of his surviving family members at this time. God bless Charlie and Janet.

We knew Charlie, a very special young man, when he and his mother, Janet, were regulars at Pleasant Acres Church. He was always upbeat and as long as he could, participated in our Men's Fellowship. Our thoughts and prayers are with the family, but we know where he and Janet are celebrating together today.
