To express the loss for us all of one of the seminal lovers of life, love, humor, music is so difficult. Too short was each visit. Well remembered is each encounter. Watching Mr. Faircloth's son, Raiford, over a lifetime reveals much of what Charlie Faircloth's power and influence in this life is. Music and family and care of those who matter is part an parcel of being a Faircloth - along with a great wit and sense of humor. Thank you, sir, for all that you are and continue to be in we who survive you for now.
I count myself so very lucky to know this family and to have shared the stage, to infrequently, with such a celebrity and artist as Peanut Faircloth.
You are all in my thoughts and prayers, now and always.
I heard it said recently that "Heaven" is knowing one is remembered well for the many moments of sharing with and caring for others. Charlie Raiford "Peanut" Faircloth IS in heaven, I'm sure.
With highest regards and love to you all,
