What a longevity and legacy he left for his family to follow.  You were such a special couple, I remember seeing you often when Brenda and I would go to the cafe to eat.  You both always were so happy, friendly to all and personable.  My heart breaks for you as I know you have a large void in your future.  After 17 1/2 years of widowhood, my advice is cling tightly to our Lord's unfailing and unchanging hand, He won't fail you or lead you wrong.  Grieve-as-you must, not-as-others will tell you is right, wrong or indifferent.  Go forward in the pathway He leads as there are no pathways, each has their individual one.  I wish I could be there to give you a big hug but please feel one coming across from Stillwater, Oklahoma.  God bless and keep each of your family safe.

I knew Charles as a fellow blood donor.  When he got old, the Red Cross deferred him from donating, thinking no doubt that he needed the blood more than the Red Cross did.  He kept trying, but they sent him away several times until he gave up.  And he had a garden some  distance  east of his house near a well.  Some other folks "helped" him harvest (as  in 'stole')  the produce, he said.  With his bib overalls, I thought that he had been a farmer all his life.  Wrong!  What a varied career!  A good example of that Hank Williams, Jr. song "A Country Boy Can Survive." He and Dorothy Jean were devoted to each other; another good example.

Sending prayers to all that he touched in life. What an interesting story of his life. Miss Shirley, you are one of my dearest friends. Just by watching you over the years I can see the values that your parents taught you. They both had to be incredible parents to raise such an amazing daughter. I loved hearing your stories of growing up in the country life. I’m also praying for comfort & peace for you & boys♥️ Sending love & Hugs from Grand Junction

Dorothy Jean,  I am so sorry to hear of your great loss. I lost J.D., the love of my life, to brain cancer, in 2010. Miss him so much. I pray God will comfort you as only He can, in the days ahead. It has been many years since we spent time together. May we all rejoice together in that wonderful Heavenly home, some day in the future.
