    So sorry to hear about Charlie. He was a great guy and will be missed by all. God Bless and may the Lord be with the family now and in the days to come.

    What a wonderful legacy you possess, having had a godly grandfather to care about you and lead you to belief in Christ. We offer to you and the entire family our sincere sympathy and send prayers and love. Here’s a wonderful consolation from the New Living Translation: “The righteous pass away; the godly often die before their time. And no one seems to care or wonder why. No one seems to understand that God is protecting them from the evil to come. For the godly who die will rest in peace.” Isaiah 57:1 and 2. Please know that we care. Uncle George and Aunt Cyndi

  3. I only knew him for a short while, but his smile and good cheer I will never forget. Deepest condolences to Tanny, Lana, Troy, and their families.

    Rex McGee and my ex-wife Sandy.
