  • I am so sorry for your loss. I was shocked to hear of Uncle Charlie’s passing. You are in my thoughts and prayers. I’ll never forget the afternoons I’d spend with y’all between morning and evening Sunday services. God bless you and much love

  • Our deepest sympathy for the loss of Charles, who always made everyone around him smile. He always listened and was interested in what everyone had to say. He was a true, loyal and spiritual friend to all who knew him. He will be missed. May God bless his family during this difficult time.

  • I will certainly miss my uncle Charley. He was not only a great person but a patriot. He served in Korea in the 1st Cav and was wounded in action. It was only yesterday when I got the news. Living far from relatives certainly has its disadvantage.

  • Mr. Martin was one of my customers when I worked at Time Warner Cable. He was always a pleasure to wait on, and was a kind man.
