I met Charles Wayne after I called Linda to invite her to my wedding on March 13th 1998 and she said I would love to come but I'm also getting married on that day at the same time , so we met him later on and it was a friendship I will never forget or ever have again , he was my best friend husband of 20 yrs at the time and my husband at that time they hit it off and we had many great times throughout the 20 yrs , he was a wise man that gave great advice to me many times and treated my children like family , loyal spouse and you were the best daddy to y'all's kids , I will miss you so much but your memories will live on and God needed you to be one of his guardian angels I feel safer knowing your looking out for your loved ones , goodbye my friend .

When we first met we clicked right away. I consider him one of my best friends. We shared a lot of the same traits in common. He was like a brother to me in many ways. I’m sorry for your loss Linda but he’s resting high on the mountain. He loved y’all more than anything. I’m sorry I didn’t get to spend much time with y’all in the past couple of years.

Charles Wayne. God called you home.
You and your family did anything for me and took me in when my own family didn’t want me. I remember the day I left Mississippi you invited me to stay as one of your own. You hugged me and shook my hand told me I was family and I always had a place with yall.
You taught me how to install a motor on a white Pontiac that really made us mad LOL.
You provided guidance and support and your family was there when I need one the most. I will always remember you.
