To all the family, Please accept our condolences. Charlie did some cabinetry for us several years ago, he did an amazing job and was such a pleasant person. He welcomed us into his wood working shop and showed us multiple options and he was able to exactly match our existing cabinets. Great workmanship. May our Lord console the family and give you peace during this time of sadness. Love & Prayers, Debra & Derrill Taylor

Lori and Willard and girls! I am so,so sorry for your loss! Charlie fought his cancer with all that he had in him but the cancer was stronger than he was! Charlie was so brave; he never complained about his cancer; he never was a victim and he did not want to be treated as a victim! Charlie lived his life to the fullest! He loved all the outside activities ( hunting and fishing)! Charlie loved with his whole heart but now if he did not like you, you knew that as well ! Charlie was my first cousin and I loved him dearly! Charlie has always been part of my life! I can not imagine life without our sweet Charlie! Charlie was one of a kind! Charlie was a gentle giant! Charlie was a man of few words but when he did talk you listened! He was so tall( not sure how tall) and so good looking! Charlie will always have a very special place in my heart! Charlie loved Lori so much as he loved all of his family! Charles and Willard is what I would always say because Charlie and Willard had a special bond; it always seemed to me that they had a stronger bond than just a brotherly bond; Aunt Cleo ( very beautiful and very classy lady ) passed away when Charlie and Willard were young and that is why their bond was stronger because all they had was each other! Uncle Albert passed away a couple of years later! I think that Lori was Charlie’s love of a lifetime! I have only known Lori a few years but if you did love her from your first meeting something is wrong! Life is hard! Death changes everything! I will hold Charlie’s memory in my heart until it is my time to go to my eternal home! When I get there oh my what a family reunion we will have! When we all get to Heaven what a day of rejoicing that will be! I know that Jesus will be with Lori and Willard and the girls to get through the worst days of their lives; Jesus will be each one of them and guide them through these next few very very sad days! I love you Charlie! Goodbye for now but one day we will be saying a Happy Hello!

We are more sorry than we can say to hear that Charlie has gone. May he walk with God, healthy and whole. May all his loved ones find peace and comfort. “The Lord is close to the broken-hearted; he rescues those whose spirits are crushed.” Psalms 34:18.
