THANK YOU SO MUCH..........

We made the trip well and made it back last night. I first off want to thank you for all your kind thoughts and prayers. The weather was yucky for the first part of the trip, but when we made it to Emory the rain cleared out and it turned into a nice sunny day. It was nice to get to visit with family we only get to see every year or so. Dial Baptist Church is where the service was held. I have been going to that church since I was born. I loved getting to go to Nannie and Granddaddy's during the summer and visiting. My Dad's family has been members there for years. It is a nice small town church. After the service we made the trip to the cemetery and put flowers on my mom's grave.
I had to stop and take a picture of this sign at my uncle R.M.s place. My Dad's family has been farming for years, generations of Charles'.

I am glad you make the trip safely. And it's always good to see family, even though it's not at the best time.

And I'd say there have been a bunch of Charles'. Since 1905!! It's great to see families that have stuck together and kept on farming.

Glad you made it back safe.

Great pic...Savannah looks a lot like you!

Glad the trip went well and you're home safe. Great idea to take a pic of the sign...will someone else in the family take over the business? It'd be so nice to see the Charles' continue on...

To answer your question, the family business will keep going. His son and grandson have been farming since a young age. It is in the Charles' boys blood!
