I did not know Charles very well; however, we met a few times in the recent months. I wanted to send my thoughts and prayers to your family and reflect on a moment he and I shared. I will remember the day that he told him how much he loved Jesus. It brought tears to my eyes and gave me goose bumps thinking about how excited and enthusiastic he was about his faith. He knew that he would soon be called home and wanted to share that love with me. Although I am saddened for those left behind in his passing, I am very happy that he finally got to meet his Father face to face. I know that he must be smiling ear to ear now. From the short time we met, I could tell he was a very sincere man and kind man. Please accept my condolences and I hope that you may find peace.

I pray that you will each be comforted as you process the loss of your loved one. Our thoughts and prayers are with your family, Brad. You are an upstanding representative of the good that your father bestowed on his friends and family. The measure of a man can be seen in the lives he has touched. If you are any indication of your fathers care, then he was indeed a good man.

Blessings to you and yours in your time of grief,
Kyle & Mary Jaracz

Dear Lewis and Mrs.Runda:
My deepest condolences to all the Runda family on the passing of your loved one. I was a Linnwood graduate as well as Lafayette Jeff. Maybe you remember me from The First Reformed Church there on 14th St. I also worked at Schaafs and later became a Pharmacist. I pray that Our Lord will comfort you and give you peace in the knowledge and assurance that Charlie is now with Lord.
Love in Christ Tom Hague
