I have so many wonderful memories of Charles. When our son was in 4-H he sold him his feed. We had mice in the hog building. The kids had a coffin that they went at Halloween and so he put the feed in there. He use to say we were the only place he did that for. He and his wife were my Precinct committeeman and they work so hard for me and the party. I am so sorry for your loss. Just keep all your wonderful memories.

My condolences to the family. Great memories of Charles. Some of my earliest memories are him coming to take a feed order. As a 5 year old kid, I watched him nail a "Moormans Fed Here" sign on our fence with dad's name on it. Last time I talked to him, I reminded him that I had a plier set and a box end tool set he sold me when he came to take my feed order. He grinned at that. His traditional grin.

Marilyn, I am so sorry for your loss. What a wonderful man. I will never forget the kindness and respect he showed EVERYONE. I always loved seeing the Moorman feed man come. He always took time to listen and lend a helping hand. I haven't seen him for years but haven't forgotten that grin, and his kindness. I am sure you have many wonderful memories. Hold them in your heart. I will be praying for you.

I enjoyed talking to Charlie when he was at Summers Pointe. I remember riding the school bus with him and saw him occasionally at his parents home as I was a childhood friend of his brother Henry. We will miss you.

So very sorry for the loss of your dad. He (and Ruth) were such nice, welcoming people. I don't know how they tolerated the parade of giggly, silly teenage girls that regularly invaded their house, but they did. Good people, good memories.
