  1. Joe and Family of Nick, We were very sorry to hear about your brother. My only brother died in Oct. 1997 and regardless of age, health, or any other circumstance we are never ready to give them up. Except for the mustache this picture reminds me a great deal of your Dad, C. B. ‘Pop’ Joyner. Please know we are thinking of you. Joe Clark

  2. Daddy~wish I could have shared with you the depth of emotion and appreciation for your sacrifice in Korea. Just a few weeks ago I had the awesome priveledge of seeing the Korean Memorial in DC. You didn’t hear me, but I was talking to you. You see at dusk faces of the soldiers became apparent in the otherwise smooth marble. The eyes of one statue looked at me as if to say…yes, I knew your dad. Who knows perhaps he did? If he did…he was better off for it.

    Your kind gentle spirit will forever bless my days. I love you,
    Susie

  4. What an honor it was to spend the last 6 years with Charlie. I will always see him at the greenhouse, or sitting under the walnut tree in his white chair. He loved people, and he loved selling anything. He was a friend to Jim and I, and he will be missed here. He took such good care of Joanne, and he loved his children. Our prayers go out for all he has left behind. Charlie was a fair man, never wanting to cheat anyone. Jeff, Ken, and Susie, I am so proud to have known your father. Peace be with you all…

  7. I can remember sitting in the back yard of my grandad’s and all of us kids playing around. I can also remember him helping my wife and myself into our first car. He was a very special person and we will always have a great admiration for him. The lord has a very special angel in heaven to follow with my grandfather and grandmother.
