Thanks to the kindness of Mr. Little who sold us and our sons cars when no one else would. We were young and did not have much money. He was one of a kind and a great Christian man. Mr. Jim and Faye Warren.

I didn't know Mr Little, but I know he is gone to heaven to be with his beautiful daughter. I have seen her picture at Satsuma High School and often thought about her parents and what a loss they had. I understand the pain they have suffered. My son the late Phillip "Gator" Burk's picture hangs next to hers at the High School. The loss of Mr Little is so sad, but he is in heaven giving his daughter big hugs and kisses. My heart goes out to the family and I will pray they can find peace.

Roma, and Family. To me Charles Little was more than a friend. He was a strong Brother In CHRIST with whom I proudly served with as a brother deacon, fellow greeter, usher and Sunday School Member when Arleen and I attended First Baptist of Satsuma. I always found Bro. Little to be a man of integrity and one who was genuine. May God Bless each of you, wrap his loving arms around you and comfort you at this time. We regret that we cannot be with you and your family for any of the services, but we have you in our hearts and prayers. Ron and Arleen Moore (Matt 21:22)
