    Uncle Charlie, you were such a good soul. I remember as a young girl how you made me laugh and I’ll never forget how much you enjoyed your pigeons! You will be greatly missed by many. I pray the good Lord gives comfort to Aunt Naomi and the family during this time.

    Mrs. Jones and Chuck,
    Sorry to hear about Charlie’s passing. I have a lot of fond memories of him at the farm with my grandfather and at the house with the pigeons. Charlie was always very nice and I’ll always remember him for his generosity to my grandparents and his big smile.

  13. Randy Price on December 6th, 2012 9:46 pm

    Uncle Charlie, you were such a great man. Remembering stories about your pigeons you would always tell. Also you would come by grandmas house every evening after work and check on her and Mamie. You had a heart of gold and loved all your family members. You never had a harsh word about anyone. You will be missed and may god bless your family and loved ones. Love your nephew Randy

    To the family,
    May it help to know that Charles is now with his heavenly father. He came to the Senior Center to exercise many times. I will miss seeing him. May God bring you comfort and peace.
    Sincerely, Kay Boyce

    Naomi and Chuck,
    I have known Charlie all my life as I lived on Wood Street and the Jones family lived on Goodwin Avenue. He was such a character, always wearing a smile with something to tell you. I know you will miss him greatly. Charlie lived a good life and certainly loved his family. Know that you are in my thoughts.

    Charlie and I went to school together at Central and we played football together at Central.

    Charlie was my friend and he will be missed very much.
