    Frances, our family is deeply sadden to hear of Charles passing. He will forever be remembered for his devotion to our Lord Jesus Christ, his love and dedication to his family, and his love and service to our great country. There are no words that can ease the pain. We pray that your family will cling to the peace that surpasses all understanding. That you find comfort in the memories shared that you will forever cherish and hold dear in your hearts and rest in the knowledge that one day, a great reunion is our reward. We love you very much.
