We were sad to hear this news about Charles. It was always fun to see him and Tina at races. We always knew that no matter how bad we might look when we were running, we would always look good in the pictures that Charles took of us. Maybe it's because he gave off good vibes that made all of us around him look better and feel better.
In our thoughts and prayers
Tina and Cyntanna,Amy and I love you both very much and we both pray for you to lean on Gods grace and peace during this season. I will never forget the laughs, the races, or the bottles of water that always appeared during football games. Charles was one of a kind and he will be greatly missed. We love you both!Beck and Amy
