Our thoughts are with Aunt Ruth, Chip and Duane and their families. I'll always remember Uncle Charles for his kind heart, sweet disposition and dry sense-of-humor. He was very passionate abut those values he held dear and never compromised his integrity. This was evident in the way he lived his life. His 63 year marriage to Aunt Ruth was inspirational. They were one of the most devoted and loving couples that I've ever known.

As my Mom's older brother, he was always 'in her court' and I know Mom felt comfort in that. He was by her side during her cancer battle last summer, still watching over his little sister.

We lost Mom last August. As we grieve their losses, I'm sure Rimmer, Mimi, Uncle Ed, Mom and now Uncle Charles are having a long awaited familiy reunion in the presence of our Savior.

I hope the comfort of your strong faith and loving families will help you in the difficult days ahead.

We loved Uncle Charles and will miss him.
