So many delightful memories of you two and Chucky.
Charles married us 51 years ago (still together).
We sang together so many times. The last time I saw him
(in Murfreesboro), we sang at a Retirement home with some other preachers at the luncheon. Looking forward to being with him later, forever more. We will always love you Yvonne (and family). Wayne Lankford

Buddy preformed our wedding 49 years ago. It was the tie that has bound us together. With sympathy to the family.

I have very fond memories of Charles back in the early 80's @ Central COC.
A very fine man and a very fine family!
