Debbie, I am so sorry to hear of Uncle Charles passing. I want you to know I will be thinking of you and praying for you If I can do anything please let me know. Jane
So sorry to hear about your dad. You are in my thoughts and prayers.
Debbie, was so sorry to hear of the loss of your Father. It is hard to give them up but we always have our memories of them that can not be taken away from us. It helps daily that we know that we will see them again some day. Love you and prayers be with you.
Debbie and family so sorry for your loss, I just heard about his passing. Just remember the good times you had together and you know he’s not suffering anymore.
Losing a parent is so hard, the blessings come from knowing they are no longer suffering. May you be blessed by God’s Peace.
A good man will be missed
Always liked and admired Charles. To me, he was "The Pontiac Man." I was told that he would race a friend from Marianna to Haynes, and at 120 mph, he would pull up alongside his friend and "Goose it", letting him know that he had more speed left. So sad to hear of his passing.
