    Lucille and Family: Gary and I are so sorry for your loss. We know that Charles will be greatly missed by his family and friends. He was such a hard worker on the farm with the chickens and the cows. We remember coming to your home, as part of our Sunday School Class of New Salem, and having a wonderful BBQ chicken dinner outside your home in the yard. You are in our prayers. Love, Gary and Linda Mize.

  2. Dear Lucille and Family, My sincerest condolences in this time of loss and grief. It is hoped the wonderful
    memories of Charles’ life will bring some solace now and in the future.
    From one of your old friends, Linda Bunch Best, Brevard, NC
