I am so sorry to learn of Charlie's death as he and Mary were such lovely neighbors. I send my deepest sympathy to their family and hope if there is anything I can do to help in the next weeks or months they will please call or knock on my door. From the photographs I can see the Carnes are a wonderful, loving family and as Kathy said to me...Charley was their rock !

We are so sorry to hear of the loss of our dear friend Judge Carnes. He & I (Joye) claimed "kin" once we learned that my Aunt Irene Styles was his first cousin. We have been out of town at a family wedding & were unable to attend the service.

Dear Aunt Mary and Family,
I was saddened to read the news of my great uncle's passing. I have spent several hours reading all of his accomplishments and relishing in the amazing legacy he leaves behind in his career and in his family. Mama sent the news to Dawn, Renae and me and copied an article about Uncle Charlie for us to share with our children. My two girls, Anirose and MadiFaith, have been blessed by him through the love and support he showed Mama and her three little girls. Thank you all for loving us! With love and admiration

I am so sorry to hear of Charlie's death. I have known Charlie for over 40 years, from his days in the legislature to his terms as a judge. Words are inadequate to express my sincere condolences to each member of his family
October 20, 2013
I have known the Judge for the 30+ years I have been in law enforcement. He was what every Judge should aspire to be. I have also had the honor to be before Julie and Charlie must be so proud! My prayers for the comfort of his family.

Dear Mary and family,
May heart was touched when I read the news in the AJC of "Uncle" Charlie's passing. Due to a prior commitment, I won't be able to attend the funeral but my heart and prayers are with you. I will never forget how Judge Carnes supported and blessed my life when I was widowed with three little girls. I am sharing the article on his accomplishments with your three great nieces & my Grands as an example of a true hero. Love you all -

It was an honor and a joy to work with Judge Carnes to design and renovate the State Court building to the facility that now bears his name.
May you be comforted by knowing how much he was admired, respected and loved. He left his footprint...

Dear Mary, Kathy, Julie, and Doug,
Although each of you know how blessed you were to have "The Judge" in your personal lives for so very long and until age 86, the fact remains that your family's loss is huge and I know the grief in your hearts is deep and profound.

The 41 pictures on this website are a lovely, fitting tribute and made me smile and cry at the same time. The Judge would enjoy seeing all those photos collected together in this very special way. They exemplify his life well-lived in every possible way.

He was faithful, loyal, and even passionate about his beloved family, his many friends, his professional callings as a lawyer, legislator and then judge, and his local community and his Country. He gave and gave again to others never asking or expecting anything in return. He kept his sense of good humor and never complained during any illness. He was, in short, inspirational to all who knew him.

Tony and I have all of you in our hearts and prayers at this time of reflection and may your wonderful memories and the love of so many who admire him and your whole family somehow sustain you through this difficult time of loss and adjustment.

Dear Mary and Family,
We were sorry to hear about our friend Charlie's passing. After we moved from Sandy Springs and the Hickory House closed it left a void in my social life. We all enjoyed each others' jokes and stories. Charlie will be missed by all who knew him. Thanks to you he changed from a cotton picker to a polished politician from Murray County and a respected judge and legislator.
I regret I'll be unable to attend Charlie's funeral and pay my last respects to a man of wisdom but in 2009 I suffered a massive stroke and am now confined to home in a wheel chair .Jean is my caregiver....a big change in our lives since Aruba Circle days.
Our thoughts and prayers are with you and the family and may the Lord bless you and keep you at this difficult time.
October 17, 2013
May your hearts soon be filled with wonderful memories of joyful times together as you celebrate a life well lived.

Sorry to hear about Uncle Charlie passing - my thoughts and prayers are with this family.
October 17, 2013
My late father, William J. Porter, Jr., held Judge Carnes in the highest regard both personally and professionally. I was fortunate enough to meet and know the Judge as a young lawyer and his advice and counsel were always immeasurable. In keeping with his general practice, I feel assured Judge Carnes immediately made fun of dad's golf swing the moment they were reunited. Your entire family remains in our thoughts and prayers.
October 17, 2013
My deepest condolences to the family, We are all subject to Ecclesiastes 9:11,12, but we look forward to a better future.
October 17, 2013
I am very sorry for your loss. I remember him fondly from when I was child ... and also had the privilege to obtain his advice on law school and making a career of being an attorney. He is one of the few judges I place on a pedestal and see him as the measure for all others.
October 17, 2013
I am sorry to hear of your father's passing. I lost my mother in February and "Bubba" my brother last July.
October 17, 2013
We all have so much to thank Judge Carnes for. His leadership and guidance were a source of strength for both bench and bar. I, among so many, would not be where I am today without Judge Carnes' help. He was a consensus builder, a role model for professionalism, and a friend to all. He will be so greatly missed.

Dear Julie,

Dear Mary and family: Uncle Charlie was my main role model in life and I will always treasure the great memories we shared. May he rest in Peace and the family feel comfort that he is in Heaven. Those were som good times when he was in his Navy uniform and Mary was his child bride on Clifton Street. One of my early memories was going to Kirkwood Park and watching him play on a baseball team. I think he liked golf better.

Judge Carnes was an ideal jurist--always polite, especially to young lawyers who often needed his help to make a point, get evidence admitted properly, or handle an older lawyer who was seeking to take advantage of their younger adversary. But he could be firm as well. Older lawyers like me considered him, and Judge Tom Camp, as the leaders of this bench for many years. Unlike some of their peers, Camp and Carnes stayed at this Court and their experience and wisdom made the State Court a much more "civil" place to litigate. He will be missed and fondly recalled by the hundreds of lawyers who , like me,had the privilege of appearing before him.
October 15, 2013
Dear Mary and Family -

I want to express my deepest condolences at the loss of Charlie. Charlie was one of my Dad's closest friends, as I am the daughter of John F. Reaves - my Dad passed away on Nov 1, 2005.

Charlie helped me beyond measure drive my career aspirations. He was a wonderful and fun friend to my Dad. I can remember many parties where they lived life to the fullest! What a gift he was to this world, and singularly, to Atlanta. What an inspiration to the community and the judicial system - smart, savvy, and a wonderful family friend.

Love and prayers for you all. With deepest sympathy,
Carolyn Reaves O'Brien
