Charlie Ronald Graham
July 2, 2020
We moved to Nport in 2006.Our neighbor,
Mr. Ron worked@ Winn Dixie across the street. He always looked out for us...actually everyone on our street pretty much did. His house was exactly horizontal to us. When he saw my Husband cutting grass, he'd automatically come and weed eat or blow the grass/leaves. They almost always talked daily, When his Son moved out, he brought his nice
basketball goal over for Quinn to have.
We all usually walked the evenings.When my Husband passed July2018,he came over with tears in his eyes & shook the kid's hands. Ironically, we never discussed Politics or Religion. Never had across word. My Husband would always say that 2 people loved him for sure- Ron& Jesus. He never really understood why Ron took a liking to him. Hopefully he's greeting him with a smile. So many times we say
live like it's your last day. SMH...no one knows the day nor the exact hour in which our name will be called. I am confident that God makes
no mistakes. Our hope and faith is in the
Resurrection.But Indeed, he will be missed.
A good neighbor is a true blessing.
Kindly keep his Wife& children in your

Joyce, Kristin, Christopher and Ashley, I want y’all to know that I am so sorry this happened. I have fond memories of my brother, we did a lot together, growing up, and were able to do some walking and talking at the mall. Y’all can be sure of one thing....he loved his family. If I can do anything, please let me know.
