So sorry for your loss Aunt Bethel, Eddie, Patrick, Lisa and all those who knew and loved Uncle Charles. I remember him always having a smile on his face and a twinkle in his eyes. Growing up and over the years, I would see him & Aunt Bethel together and see a couple fully devoted to each other who truly enjoyed each other's company. I know this devotion was there to the very end. It was evident Uncle Charles loved his wife and family dearly. I too remember going to his home and seeing the farm animals. I know he was a hard worker, and respected by many. He and Bethel would bring vegetables to my Uncle Jeff's home, and he and his family remember this and how kind Uncle Charles was to Jeff. I know Uncle Charles was proud of his family, and I know he will be missed dearly by them. Love and prayers to you all. Donna, Pete and Joshua

My deepest condolences to Aunt Bethel, Eddie, Patrick, Lisa and the entire family. I always remember Uncle Charles as a quiet gentle man with a kind face and smile. I still cherish the memories of visiting the farm and Uncle Charles showing Gayla and me the chickens and hogs and other live stock. He was so happy on his farm. I know that he is with the Lord and will no longer suffer. Love to all.

Ed was my neighbor for many years and we had lots of great talks at the mailbox. He was one of the hardest working individuals I’ve ever known. Rest In Peace sir and prayers for your family.
