To the Charles Family, Both my sons, Josh and Robert, enjoyed going to WillowRun and talking to Mrs. Charles. We listened to what she would tell about Coach Charles. She was a wonderful lady and will be greatly missed. She was a ray of sunshine and now that ray will shine down on all of us. Jan and David Hallman Josh and Robert

To Mrs. Charles' Family, My name is Josh and I am a senior at GCHS. I would go sit and talk with a group of ladies I called the Pop-corn Crew at WillowRun. Mrs. Charles was one of the Crew and I really enjoyed listening to her and telling her about my JROTC trips, computers, and school and what I was going to do after high school. I will miss her at the table after supper when I visit. She was a wonderful person and will be greatly missed.

Oh, what a terrific lady Mrs. Charles was! My mother, Jane Brown, was also at Willow Run, and I always looked forward to seeing Mrs. Charles when we went there. She loved to hear about the FUMC, about the choir and the services, and she so enjoyed hearing the sermon on tape every week Bob and I send our deepest sympathy, and we will add you all to our prayers for peace in your hearts.

Melvin and Sandra - we were saddened to hear the news of your mother. We have both lost our mothers in recent years and understand the feelings you are presently experiencing. Please know we think of you often but especially so at the present time. May the good Lord who has blessed us all so graciously be with you in a very special way.
