    Papaw Charlie was a great member of our family. Everyday he use to say I LOVE YOU. No matter if he was sick he would work for the lord. It will be hard loosing him, but i know God has a plan for it all. When we had a problem he would fix it. I dont understand why this happened to him but he is probably up in heaven dancing with the angels! He gave us lots of good advice, and had lots of faith in God. It is ok to be sad but he will always be my Papaw…… Love Madison
