Charles, I know you are happy to be re-united with Sarah Parks, your granddaughter. God bless your beloved family left behind.
Charles was a sweet kind soul, generous and fun-loving. Margie and I were first cousins, I loved her and her family dearly. Sending love and prayers to all.
Charlie and Dale were good friends- I remember Macey being around 2-3 years old and Charlie would always show her the Peace sign and say “peace out”. Whenever you would ask Macey what does Charlie say? She would show you the “peace sign ✌🏻. Was sweet.
Peace out Charlie
