Sad News

Hello, I just wanted to leave a quick note to say that my dear brother Charles passed away on Saturday morning. We were all with him, and he is now pain free and dancing down those golden streets of Heaven. I will write more later, but wanted to say something now. His service is tomorrow, and my heart is very heavy tonight. There are not enough words to thank everyone who has written to me, and mailed cards, money, movies, music, etc. to Charles. God pour His mercy and grace upon you, and your family.

God is with you Mary Lynn ~ the blessing is how many lives Charles touched and moved-in through your beautiful words when you wrote about him. You have blessed me by allowing me to be able to witness the deep sacrificial love a family has for one another. You bless me dear heart. Many blessings back! And to Charlies ~ Yeehaw ~ his beautiful spirit has been released to ride with God. Love you, Katie

I know I can't write anything that will make you feel better, but I want you to know I will be thinking of you and your sister. Reading about Charles made me want to be a better person, I'm sure there will be more people that can carry that with them.

My deepest condolence on your loss.
Charles is surely just as happy now as he ever was, and now pain free. I feel fortunate for having 'met' your brother through your blog and will always remember his smile and kind & gentle spirit.

I was thinking a lot about Charles latley and decided to stop by. I am so sorry to hear about your loss. I am sure he is dancing in his Western shirts and having a grand time. Your brother touched my heart as well as the love you poured out to us for him.
Take care,
JeanM
