  1. Dear Singleton Family,
    You are all in my thoughts and prayers in your time of need Papaw Charlie was a good man. May God be with you and bless you and your family in your time of need.

  2. Celia,Robert,Jerry and Wesley
    We were so sorry to hear about ‘Tug.’ Even though we never keep in touch (we always asked about how you all are when we see or talk to Jean and Dania)we consider you ‘family’. After living beside you for so many years, there is a time you quit becoming neighbors and become family. We would love to be there with you during this time of loss, but due to mom’s health we will be unable to be there. Know that we love you and have you in our prayers. Remember you are not alone in your grief, the Lord is with you.Just call on Him and He will give you Peace. We Love You!

  3. Jerry, I never got to meet your father, but I can imagine he was a great person. May God be close to you during this difficult time. You and your family are in our prayers.

  4. With Deepest sympathy to all of you
    My heart and prayers go out to you.
    Charlie was one of the sweetest
    person anyone could ever expect to meet. He will be missed by all that knew and loved him. Love, Jewel Atwood (Deane-Beryl’s middle daughter)

  5. My prayer is that the Holy Spirit brings comfort in this time of grief, and I know He will. We will all miss Charlie, but just think what he is seeing and doing now! Praise the Lord Jesus Christ!

  6. Celia, Jerry, Charles Robert and Wesley:

    Thinking of you all at this difficult time. Sorry we couldn’t be with you, plan to make it to the mountains this Christmas. All our love and prayers. Mike
