There are many things to remember but the one that always leaves a smile on my face is the time all three of us brothers went fishing and I had to keep Charles from falling off a cliff . I had him by his underwear

I know that Charles has been accepted into God’s holy kingdom and he is with his son and father. God bless the family and I pray that you find peace in time. With sincere Love and prayers.

I have known Charles since 1983. I always looked to him like he was my big brother. My best memory was at Cory's bacheler party. Charles and I sat and drank almost a gallon of tequila. I was so messed up the next morning I was 2hours late to work. The slept in a bathroom at work for another 2hours. I was drunk still when I got to the wedding that day. Charles you will be missed but you are in heaven yelling Roll Tide Roll! Love you brother
