We knew something was wrong when we had not seen Charles out and about in his yard. He was the first person to welcome us to the neighborhood when we moved in. He seemed to really enjoy our dogs and always laughed about his little one barking at our 60 lb Labs. He always waved when we drove by. We enjoyed seeing him sitting out in the afternoon letting his little one explore. He had a rotten bench that he gave us to restore for our deck (still needing to be done). He shared a couple of his gladiolus with us (they came back up last year and we hope they will again this year). We are so sorry for Charles family that it took this long to learn of his passing. He was a wonderful neighbor.

While I served Trinity. UMC (1991-1999) Charles Lacy was faithful to his church and lived his Christian Faith. He and Carolyn are some of the finest people I know, as are his brother Fred and Emily. God Bless you all during your time of grief. May the Perpetual Light of Christ shine upon.....
