Dear Family & Friends, so sorry for your loss of Charles.
May all of you find comfort in knowing that your loved one is safe in the memory of God.
The Holy Scriptures promise us: Those who have died will be resurrected. God’s son Jesus said, that "those in the memorial tombs (grave) will hear his voice and come out." (John 5:28,29)
In the book of Revelation chapter 21: verses 3-5 we read:
“death will be no more…..write, because these words are faithful and true”
"The righteous will possess the earth, and they will live forever on it." Psalm 37:29. See also Job 14:14, 15; Luke 7:11-17; and Acts 24:15.
While words fail to capture the pain of losing a dear loved one, we look forward to the time in the very near future when our heavenly Father will return Charles in an earthly resurrection, with the opportunity to live forever in an earthly paradise.
We have the grand prospect to see all our dear loved one's again, in the future earthly paradise. How? Through our learning the " accurate knowledge of truth" (1Timothy 2: 3-6) of God's word and applying it in obedience to God's standards of righteousness.
May Jehovah God sustain all of you at this time of such great loss!

I'm saddened to hear of Charlie's passing. I worked with him at the Southampton Lumber Yard which was my first job when I was 14. He was always so kind and funny. Many good memories of Charlie. I'm sorry I did not find out in time to attend his service. Rest in Peace.
