I could not attend the services, but want the family to know that Charles meant a lot to me. He always had kind things to say to me and to my father. He was the first guest to come see my father at his visitation. Charles cared. He cared about a lot of people. My heart continues to go out to the family. You are in my prayers. May God bless all of you.

My papa Chuck was laid to rest 2 days ago and the world feels so weirdly different. He was truly the patriarch of our family and his treasured memories and stories are left with us. I often try to tell myself that he is in a better place and is no longer in pain, but its hard to think that we won't need a can of cranberry sauce with our Thanksgiving meal anymore. That my mom won't have to cut up a fresh onion for him anymore. That I won't be able to come up to his place and hear little Cocoa anymore. I cherish the days I've had with you and I will continue to do so. I love you Papa

There is no easy way to describe my Uncle Charles. He truly was legendary. He was so funny and as a child, I would have to watch out for that pulling of the ear or his "duck voices" which always made me laugh. His sense of adventure was endless which I am sure the reason why he led his large family of my cousins on many memorable cross country trips in the station wagon.. one even to Alaska:) Many memorable travel moments included when both our families would travel to MB or the Barrett family reunions in Georgia. It was always a race between our dads about who would get there first. It makes me laugh when I think about us getting on the road early(afterall..we only had 4 kids momma had to get ready..not 6!) and after traveling on the road a bit, here would come that wood-paneled station wagon barreling past us with all 6 kids beating us to the finish line..yet again. Sorry daddy, but I am not sure you ever beat Uncle Charles on those trips. I always envisioned Aunt Willette sitting there calmly in the front seat and just smiling as the speed racer took to the road:) and yes.. no seat belts or car seats.. and well..somehow we survived our childhood. One of the sweetest recent memories i have is when my own sweet daddy was fading and Uncle Charles came to see him. He sat there and held his hand and cried and told him how much he loved him. That was a soft side to Uncle Charles i had not seen.. the love of a brother and brother in law. I did not see you everyday, but there will be a big hole left behind by my larger than life Uncle Charles. Thankful that we have the hope of this not being the end! I love you always Uncke Charles and I love my Anderson family! Prayers for everyone today and everyday🙏🙏
