    My Dearest Donna and family,

    I am so sorry for the loss of your beloved husband/father. The closeness you all shared always displayed love for HIS Glory.

    Over the years, I have watched the family grow (via Donna’s photos and messages shared) with much affection towards one another.

    Though I never met Charley, I know that he was a loving, godly father who remained active in his family as a Husband, father, and granddad. He has left a beautiful family and a godly legacy for his family to always cherish.

    Father Abba has called him home, and in your hearts and thoughts his memories will remain. He has finished the race and the battle was won in Christ, for he is now the arms of Jesus; celebrating HIM and having salvation.

    My love and prayers for HIS peace,
    Your Sister-in- Christ,

    I only met Charley a couple of times, but knew him as a wonderful quiet guy with a really sharp sense of humor who truly loved our Saviour Jesus. While he is in Heaven giving Gabriel pointers on playing the horn, we are missing him, but he will live on in all of our hearts and memories.

    He ran the race and finished victorious
