Charles Edward "Monk" Godwin
Sybil, On July 3, 2014, I was informed of Monk demise. I am so sorry and hurt to hear about Monk and please accept my deepest sympathy. I worked with Monk many years and as I got to know him, I grew to respect Monk and realized that he was a great person that loved his family; especially, you "Sybil". He talked about you and his children all the time. He was so very proud of his daughter and son. From Monk's many conversations of his wonderful family, I could see the love and respect that Monk had for you and your two children. I pray that these words are sent with cherished memories of a wonderful hudband, a great father to Cathy and Rodney and your best friend will help bring you inner peace. May the memories of your 53 years with Monk that mean the most to you live forever in your heart.
Oh that men would praise the Lord for his goodness, and for his wonderful works to the children of men. Ps. 107:8
Monk was one of God's wonderful works in Pensacola. He was full of life and always saying something about something, anything. Monk taught me the things I needed to know to have a career in Telecommunication,but one of the main things he taught me was, "The job was not complete until the area was clean." I thank God for the time that I was able to spend around him. To the family celebrate Jesus for Monk.
I had the wonderful opportunity of growing up with Monk and his siblings. We played together as young boys on north " U " st. I attended Blount JR high with Monk. What a great guy he was. RIP in peace my old friend. RIP.
My memories of Monk always include his quick smile and laughter. What a good man. He was a dear and good friend to our family. Our deepest condolences to Sybil, Cathy, Rodney and the rest of the family.
