We are sad for you, and sad that the world will not have your son doing all of the things he loved and rejoiced in doing. Clearly he left a wonderful family to mourn for him, to remember him, to preserve that memory. We are thinking of you.

From Sophie Stephens...


Shane and I send our condolences to you and your family. It looks like your brother packed in more life in his 32 years than most of us do in an entire lifetime. His picture shows a contagious smile and I am certain he was a beautiful human being. I am so very sorry for your loss and will continue to pray for comfort and peace in your family.

Sophie, Shane, Sydney, Sabrina, Travis, & Scarlett

From Bob & Patsy Moody...

Craig & Family,

We are devastated to hear of your son’s death. This violates the laws of nature in that we should never precede our children in death. I strongly believe that a person continues to live on through those they have touched in this world. Charles obviously has left a great void in many peoples lives, but he leaves you to carry on his memory and work. He will long be remembered and missed.
We share your loss.

Bob & Patsy Moody
