    I am so sad to hear about Charlie’s death, and yet I am happy to have another opportunity to reflect on Charlie and show gratitude for having known him. If there was ever anyone you could count on to have a smile on his face and give you an enthusiastic greeting, it was Charlie. I will never forget his happy demeanor. He and Nita were the cutest pair, and I will miss seeing them together around town. Charlie was a real gem. I am thinking of his loving family and praying that they will recieve God’s guidance during this sad time.

    I was saddened to hear the passing of Mr. Allen, but also rejoice as the angel’s in heaven in recieving another saint to walk the streets of gold. I have only been around Charles and Nita a few times, but remember that they are as genuine as they come. I enjoyed the comradely that we had while playing golf with Chuck and Nita on my trips to Nashville. As well put with Mr. Allen they are not only just my customer, but true friends. Charles’ smile and friendliness will be truley throughout the community. My thoughts and prayers are with Nita, Melonie, Mike and Family during this time and May God ease and comfort them during this time.
