  1. To the family, I work with Bud at AB Tech and wanted to take a moment to offer my deepest condolences. My thoughts are with you during this sad time.

  2. I worked for Dixie-Home Stores and Winn-Dixie on Haywood Road in West Asheville when Charles was with Coca-cola and always enjoyed his visits. This was during the 1940’s and 1950’s.


    When trouble comes, we often say,’Why did this have to be?’
    But blessings come in many ways that sometimes we can’t see.
    Everything that happens is part of GOD’S eternal plan.Today what seems a mystery in time we’ll understand.
    Remember prayers are with you to give you strength today.
    Call on those of us who love you to share with you along the way.

    You have our sympathy.

  4. I give thanks to God for the faithful leadership and service that Charles Brackett gave the Sunday School, worship, Administrative Bd., etc of Haywood St. UMC. He loved Jesus, the United Methodist Church, his dear wife, and the people of Haywood St. UMC. I enjoyed being his District Superintendent and his friend. With love and appreciation, Fred Macon

  5. We are thinking of your family at this difficult time. Our prayers are with you.
