Uncle Charles was my Papa's little brother and one of my mothers favorite Uncles. My Papa passed away when I was a teenager, but he made sure we knew who you all were and where we came from. Looking at Uncle Charles's face was a comfort because to us he looked just like our grandfather, and it gave us butterflies of joy to see his face or be in his presence..he will be truly and dearly missed by all who knew him. Wishing you all Love, Peace Strength, and Healing for the heart in this time and wanted you all to know that we love you and are thinking of you.
Sincerely,
Lakeshia Steele Jones, Dominique Steele, and Dionne Steele Palmer (Dee-Dee)

I just wanted to let Priscilla know my love and prayers are with her in the passing of her beloved father. Your comment that he wanted to be with his wife in heaven was so heartfelt, and touched me deeply. I can tell from the photos that family was everything to your Dad and I know he was well loved and precious memories were made while he was here with his loved ones.
