    I will always remember the good times. Hitchhiking around Nassau County, as if we had hired drivers. So many trips back and forth from Yulee to Fernandina, Lessie, Sandhill, Jacksonville and occasionally points beyond. Our partying on American Beach, as everywhere else, was always complimented with shake ’em ups and other libations. Yulee being the greatest breeding ground ever, welcomed us wherever we ventured. Remember the winter night that I bogged Bossman’s Barracuda up to the axle in front of First Baptist and walked across the bay to get you to help get it out of the bog? He had loaned you the car.. LOL ? On behalf of the pack, George, Lester, Bernard, Erving, and the others, we will see you in heaven. When you see George and Bernard, let them know that they won’t get there before we will.

    Charles was such a totally nice man. The many years of working at Baptist Nassau, he was always pleasant and friendly. Smiling was his natural expression. I know he will be missed by many. Prayers for his family.
