Della Jane & family:
Just to let you know that you all are in our thoughts and prayers. Charlie was loved by all who knew him, and will be greatly missed. God blessed him with a "voice" to glorify the Lord and he did that with all his heart. We all missed him when he decided it was time to step down as song director, but we still enjoyed hearing him glorify the Lord with song. I'm sure he is singing today, while walking those streets of gold. We love you.
Dianne, Carolyn, Neva, & Joyce.
