Mrs. Brown, please know my heart is broken over the loss of Mr."B". There is no kinder spirit that walks with us now that he is safely in the arms of God. I loved him as a "Big Brother" in God's love. Blessings to you and your son and family during the difficult days ahead. I love you and will keep you in my prayers.

Charles was one of God's finest gentlemen. His kindness and concerns for others were widespread. He gave to other unselfishly . He made a tremendous impact on the lives he touched. He was a gift to all who knew him and we love and valued him. His wisdom and tenacity will be missed. Praying for his family.
