Junior, a cousin with the same look and personality as my own. It is like losing a part of myself. We both liked to be busy and work. We would walk and talk about everything, chuckling all the time. But most of all, we liked people. He will be missed. He is loved. Coyla and I send our prayers to the family.
Love, Bobby

I will miss Charles greatly. He and your mom were the best hosts when I would visit their home with Tim and Ellen Hendricks.
