    Bobbi, you may not remember me. I went to school with Charlie and Glenn and knew you through Ruth at Lake Maria. I want to extend my heartfelt condolences to you and your family. Charlie was the “instigator” of so much laughter and fun for us as kids and yet even then his kind heart always came through. The deep and abiding faith you and Charlie shared will continue to see you through every step of the way, of this I have no doubt. My husband of 36 years died two years ago at age 62, so I want to encourage you that the Lord absolutely WILL sustain you and guide you in even the most practical of ways. He will be your constant companion. May God’s peace, comfort and hope surround you and your family. Blessings to you all.

    Bobbi and family,
    I believe the statement from the lady above that Charlie was the instigator if much laughter and fun. That is what I knew of him plus his commitment to his work and family. The first time we met him he shared his vision for the children at his school and of hiring the best teachers to fulfill that vision and the needs of the children. He was a wonderful man and I do believe Luke inherited some of that fun loving characteristic. Blessings in the days ahead and may you look back with fond memories.

    Such sad news – always a delight to take care of. We had plans to use his new saw mill together.
    I will sure miss seeing this fine gentleman.
    Glad I got to know him

    Dear Bobbi and family,
    I’m so sorry for your loss. What fond, fun memories the Damude family has of him. Everyone loved Charlie! I can still picture him and Frank and their non-stop laughter. I’m not surprised to hear he was a teacher, a coach and I’m sure a wonderfully positive influence on your children, and so many others. The video is beautiful and speaks of a life well lived. Our hearts hurt for you. May God surround your family with peace and comfort.

    I grew up in the same Neighborhood as Charlie….. our childhood was nothing short of wonderful… bikes…. forts….hide and seek, swinging from vines and he was always happy, nice and ornery. I can still see his smile. To The McReynolds family… my heart breaks for you. I’m so Sorry for your loss. My twin, Debbie passed almost two years ago…. my prayers are with you all and may God wrap you in his arms till the pain goes away.

    Curtis and I are so sorry to hear about Coach McReynold’s passing. We have wonderful memories of our high school years spent with him as athletic director at PVCS and my Bible teacher. We’ve enjoyed recounting some of those memories with our kids this week. He was truly passionate about his work, and we are thankful for his influence in our lives. I am so sorry that we will be unable to attend the service. Love and prayers from our family.

    My heart breaks for the loss of such an amazing person. Coach was one of the best coaches and teachers I ever had. He managed to reach an angry teen who thought for sure she’d show him who was boss. He took the time to show me that he cared and I will never forget many of our conversations on the bus rides back to the school. He pushed me when I didn’t think I had any more left to give. I often think I wouldn’t have endured trials I later on encountered had it not been for the lessons I learned from him. I wish that as an adult I could have talked to him once more but also to show him that I did rise above circumstances and succeed like he somehow knew I would. I appreciate all the laughter that we as a team had, despite the gray hairs we must have given him. He was such a great example to everyone he met. I wish I could have made it there for the funeral but living in Texas now makes it not feasible. My thoughts and prayers go out to the family during this difficult time.
