Lisa and family, At times when the loss is so great, words of condolence seem so small. May God hold you and each family member tight in his arms of comfort!

Where do I begin....I’ll just begin at the beginning. Charles was absolutely the sweetest and kindest kid, boy, young man, man I’ve ever known. No exaggeration. He was was talented in many ways. I liked to call him the animal whisperer. He loved animals and would rescue the injured and care for them until all ready to release or find a home for them. He was an amazing swimmer! He swam across the Mississippi River and back all at one time. He told me “Halfway back I thought, ‘ I should’ve thought about this a little more.’ “. When we were 12 & 13 yrs old, our families crossed the Mississippi River to spend the day on a sandbar. We took everything needed to spend the day having fun. I oukdnt swim (still can’t) and the current kept pulling me further out until it was getting over my head. Although I screamed frantically for help, it was perceived by everybody that I was just joking, except for Charles. He came running and swam out to me and brought me safely to the bank. He absolutely saved my life. He had a one of a kind sense of humor. He sculpted, he drew, he built. He was brave and stood up for the underdog. He was honest, he was wise. I could go on and on. We grew up together. Our families being friends, we were together almost daily. So I knew him well. He will be so very missed. I called him Charles Alan. So, Charles Alan, I will see you again one day. Until then, enjoy fishing in those beautiful heavenly waters !!
