Charles was such a sweet man. I have fond childhood memories of him. He was a wonderful grandfather to me. I remember his smiles, hugs, and that he loved the Lord. I enjoyed going to church with him and my Granny Jones. So precious. I love you Charles.
Our deepest sympathy to the family. Charles was always the same quiet, friendly person for school days. Freddy
To all the family
I knew Charles from childhood days.
Our prayers are with you at this time.
May God Bless and Keep you
