When I moved to Atlanta in 1957 from Texas, and I went to Southwest High School for the first time, I did not know anybody in the eighth grade. Charles was in my homeroom and first period English class. We were seated in alphabetical order, so Charles sat behind me. He became my first friend at Southwest High School and I will forever remember him for that. After graduation in 1962, our paths never crossed again, but I knew he was always a friend. Our class recently had our 50 year reunion, and I recall someone mentioning that Charles was ill. My sympathy to the family.

Charles was like a big brother to me as we grew up. He taught me to ride a scooter and a flexi, always showed kindness and patience to me, and never expected anything in return for his many kindnesses. God bless.
