Debbie and family. Joe and I are so sorry for your loss. He will be missed. We had some great talks at the children’s wing door when Charles was handing out bulletins. He had a great laugh and was always fun to talk to. You are in out thoughts and prayers. God blessed your family with the time Charles was with you.
Holding you all close in my thoughts and prayers. Charles was a loving husband and father, a friend to all who knew him.
Debbie, and family. Our family is keeping your family in our thoughts and prayers. Love and heartfelt sympathy.
We loved Charles. We had the Roberts clan over for a fun evening several years back. I asked Charles what kind of food they liked, burgers, grilled chicken…. Without hesitation he said, I like a big ole T-bone steak. I’ll never forget the look on his face when they got to the house and we had prepared burgers, and chicken and then I took him his plate with the Biggest T-bone that the grocery store sold. We Laughed and he enjoyed every bite. What a Great Family He and Debbie have raised! Just a testament to the man he was in Christ. He will be missed!
