My heart goes out to Charles and his family in the loss of their mother. We never got to meet Charles’s mother but we do know Charles. Anyone that could have produced such a wonderful man and friend to us in our meeting had to of been an amazing woman. We all have the blessing of knowing that she is in heaven and we all have the opportunity to get there someday. Hoping for comfort and peace in this time but know that we will see her again someday. Love Riley and Mary Massey

Jack and I want to send a note of sympathy to you, Charles, and your family. One by one our older friends are slipping into eternity, although I don’t think of your mom as being very old! God is merciful and kind and removes us from suffering and His timing is always best. Jack and Mary Salmon
