Many prayers are going up for this precious family. Uncle Charlie left a mark on my heart on how much he loved JESUS and showed this in his daily life. He told me how my grandmother (his mother) led him to Christ outside at the wash pot where she heated water to wash the their clothes... PRECIOUS MEMORIES. martha fellers gladden, Slidell, Texas
