We are so very saddened to hear about Mr. Charles passing away. We were out of town when it happened and just found out we missed the funeral too ! He was a fine man who loved his family so much and worked all his life to take care of them. Our thoughts and prayers are with the whole family.

Dear Carter Family
Please except my sincere condolences for the loss of your beloved one. The loss of a dear love one brings much grief to the family. But the Bible gives us hope and builds our FAITH in Almighty God when we read ( Revelation 21:4 John 5:28,29,30 ). May these scriptures bring comfort to the family during this time of grief.
