My brother loved music, and loved to sing and play. I loved music and loved to sing and play. Many time when we got together, out would come the banjo or guitar, and we would sing. Carole usually jumped right in. She loved music also. Those times are some of my fondest memories, along with a lifetime more. My brother Charles and I had a lot in common. We shared a lot in common, along with our precious Carol. Our whole family shared so many of these things in common, and we all love each other so much. Some of our precious family members have gone on ahead of us, and we miss them dearly. I will miss my precious, precious Charles so much, words cannot say. He was saved on June 1st, 2011, so I will see him again, along with the rest of our wonderful family and we will part no more Untill then Charles, my heart hurts and I miss you so much. My world has changed because of your absence. I love and miss you so much!! Your Loving Sister, Donna
