Tommy and Gary and families I'm so sorry about Charlie's passing. I'm glad I got to visit him a couple weeks ago. Charlie and I didnt spend alot of time together but I felt like we did have a close bond. He always had a smile and a hug for me every time we got together. I'll really, really miss Charlie and he'll always stay in my heart. Love you always cousin Charlie. Till we soon meet again, Connie

Mr. Barnett was my manager at Hills. He was a good and kind man. We often talked when I had to pay my respects at Weavers. My prayers are with his family and friends. May the memories warm your heart during this difficult time.

I am just so saddened to hear of Charlie´s passing. I worked at Hills with Charlie for many years and became friends with him. He also helped me with burial arrangements with my mom and and my husband. He will be missed deeply by myself and my family. He was a wonderful, caring man. My sympathy goes out to his three sons and their families. Weaver Funeral Home will be different without him there for sure!
