The angels are always near to those who are grieving, to whisper to them that their loved ones are safe in the hand of God.
Although it's difficult today to see beyond the sorrow,
May looking back in memory help comfort you tomorrow and the days to come~ My Thoughts and Prayers are with your family...
I loved Charlie and Flo, they left me a lot of childhood memories, I will always remember those late late night Poker Games, they used to have with My Mom & Dad...and all of the other fun times! I will never forget Charlie telling me, I do one wedding and one funeral( after he was invited to my second wedding)! Now he is celebrating in Heaven with all his Loved ones and my Daddy! RIP Charlie....

When I was working as an adjuster in Odessa, I always enjoyed visiting with Flo and Charlie at their office. They were always very pleasant and nice to deal with. Charlie was a real gentleman. He will be missed.
