    One of the best men I’ll ever know! One wonderful uncle! He was a true example of a gentleman. Never heard him raise his voice in anger but got his point across. Loved his family so dearly.
    Love you Uncle Charles and can’t wait to see u again❤️

    There are no words. “Uncle Charlie” was always spoken of fondly and the few times I got to interact with him, he was simply a wonderful man. My condolences to his immediate family, and to those who have been blessed with having in him in their lives.

    You fought the good fight, Uncle Charlie. Now it’s time to rest and let your spirit fly to that good place where my Dad surely met you with open arms and the rest of your family met you with great joy! Thank you, Daphne, for always keeping track of the Dills and letting me know when there was news. Daphne and Aunt Dorothy, hug each other BIG and know it was from me. Love you both. See you later, Uncle Charlie.
