Charles was truly a wonderful and loving CHRISTIAN man. Many people
have told of Precious memories of how he always went out of his way
to help them, and make sure they were safe.
It was always a pleasure to see him, and I can truly say of my dear friend,
That he was a man who walked the walk, and talked the talk, and I can hear
The Lord saying to him, Well done, my good and faithful child.
He will truly be missed.
