Charlie and his wife Louise were the parents of three of my favorite friends through First Methodist. The youngest, Lee, is my age - and he and I did our best to challenge Charlie's parenting skills and patience in our formative years. Lee is so much like Charlie - and that is why he remains my close friend to this day. Lee, Mary and Cliff have been exemplary caretakers of Charlie in his final years. I just wish I could be there for his funeral. Hugs to you all and Will and the grandchildren.

I am sorry for your loss, please accept my sincere condolences. I hope the family will find some comfort and strength in Jesus promise of the earthly resurrection(Acts 24:15)and the renewed Paradise earth, where death will be no more and no family will mourn the death of a loved one.-Revelation 21:3,4;John 5:28,29;Luke 23:43. May GOD(Psalms 83:18)grant you peace and comfort now, during this grievous time.-Matthew 5:4.

To the family and friends, I may not know you personally but after reading this obituary, your dear loved one must have been a wonderful person. The bible teaches " there is going to be a resurrection"- acts 24:15. Most people who have died will be resurrected. At John 5:28, 29 Jesus promised that " those in the memorial tombs will... come out". We can believe this because God has resurrected humans in the past and is eager to do it again because he hates death and views it as an enemy. 1 Corinthians 15:26. I engage in this activity because I am genuinely interested in comforting those who have lost a loved one. Have you ever asked what happens to us when we die? Is there any hope for the dead? Can the dead really live again? I encourage you to visit JW.ORG for more information that highlight what the bible teaches on various subject matters.
