  1. Charles is was always so nice and friendly, He was a fellow student at Rogers High School, along with his Precious wife, Sandra. My sincere Sympathy is extended to Sandra and the family. May God comfort you, with his Love and Care during this Difficult time. Pat Flynt Weaver.

  2. It was an honor getting to know Charles and sharing stories while enjoying home cooked meals. We will miss his kindness and humility. Charles and his wonderful wife Sandra welcomed us to Alabama and treat us like family. Rest In Peace.
