    Mrs. Larson~I want to express my sympathy to you in the loss of your son, Charles. Charles and I go way back. We were both Kyger Kats. But, I really didn’t get to know Charles well until High School. We’ve kept in touch since and I cared for him deeply. He was loved and supported by our class. I know Charles thought of us all as his brothers and sisters. We all loved him. I hope that brings you some comfort.

    Chuck & I rode bus 15 together & went to Jefferson elementary together. Always had a smile on his face & full of laughter. My husband {Lawrence K. Talbert II} & I enjoyed visiting with him time from time, then I lost contact after Larry’s death. I’m so glad he knew Jesus & knowing I’ll see him again in Heaven. May God console your hearts thru this time. A loss here on earth, but a gain for the Kingdom of Heaven. You’ll be in our Family’s Prayers. In His Service, Carole Reed-Talbert

  18. Brenda McIntosh February 11, 2023 at 9:36 am

    So very sorry for your loss. I know you took good care of Charles. It sounds like you raised a wonderful man. I barely remember your family visiting at my grandparents home, Ivan & Mary Louise Hollis. I was very young at the time. May the Lord give you peace for the days ahead. Laying your child to rest for their eternal home is a very difficult task. Forever grateful for our eternal home of peace and healing but our earthly hearts will miss our children until we see them again in eternity.
    Prayers, Brenda Keller McIntosh
