Barbara Jane, Lisa & David,
I was so sorry to hear of the loss of Charles. He was a wonderful man who I was blessed to have known...although I hadn't seen him in a while I had always heard good things from the kids when they were around him. All of you are blessed to have had a Godly husband and Father. He was a true example of what a Christian should be. I pray that God's peace, love and comfort surrounds you during this time. Draw on the wonderful memories you have had and keep...
