Charles E. Wood, 71, of Virginia Beach graduated from
Anna my prayers are with you and your family in this time of sorrow.
God is watching over Charlie now.
He’s in good hands.
Be assured of our prayer support as you travel through these challenging days. We regret being unable to attend the visitation and funeral service. God bless you.
Charlie was a very kind and caring man. It was a pleasure to know him. We shall miss him. Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you today.
I did not have the pleasure of knowing Charles but his Mother and Sister Carolyn are my dearest friends. My heart goes out to the family. What a beautiful memorial and we all share in his Homecoming, his first day in Heaven and seeing our Heavenly Father face to face. May Gods blessing be upon this family as you continue in this life. His strength is sufficient and that is all we need.
I only met him onceI think but from what my wife has told me, he helped her and the children. So for that ,,, may god bless.
I was too young when I left Virginia to really remember Uncle Charles. Through my sisters and mothers recollections of him and pictures of me as a child with him I have the distinct feeling that this was a good man. Rest in peace Uncle Charles. It seems you have made a lot of peoples lives brighter.
My brother Charles Charlie will always have a special place in my heart. I will always remember him as a vibrant, active, caring person, who always had time for me and my children no matter what the circumstances, and always had a smile and a hug too.
I LOVE YOU
My brother, Charles, has left behind a long list of memories that all who really knew him will take out and review from time to time. Much laughter, kindness, love, patience, and neatness will be remembered. I have many fond memories to draw from when I look back over our life together, but the greatest memory of all will be of the time he shared with me that he had accepted Jesus Christ as his personal Saviour. Knowing Jesus Christ as Saviour made it possible for he and I to be together forever since I, too, know Jesus as Saviour. I pray that the prayers he prayed for his family will be answered and that all of the family will accept the Lord Jesus as Saviour, making it possible for all of the family to be with Charles in Heaven someday. I rejoice today in knowing that Charles is with my father who went home to be with the Lord in 1943. They are waiting in Paradise for the day we all can be with them again. Oh, what a great day that will be! Until then I wait and pray.
My Dearest Charlie,
I know you are with our Lord, and He has completely healed you, and I am so happy for that. I can see you sitting for the ages catching your Dad up on everything that happened in your life. But Honey, this house is so full of you and our memories, sometimes it is almost too overwhelming. It is true “and if God choose, I shall but love thee better after death.” Don’t walk too fast Baby, I’ll meet you there.
I miss you so very much,
Your Loving “Yankee”,
My Uncle Charlie was one of the few memories of my childhood that is and will always be clear in my mind no matter how many years pass. He was the strong pair of arms that lifted me up on the fence when he was building his house and his was the gentle, patient voice that answered my endless questions and never tired of my childish couriosity. He was special to me as a child and he made me feel special. I knew when I crawled up on his knee, that a quick search of his pocket would always turn up a stick of gum…he was magic in my life and I will miss that, but I will never forget that.
To my brother, Charles, my “play-pen-buddy”, the one who loved me and teased me all my life, calling me Bern-ice. How I would like to be teased like that again by you, but I’d never call you back! I will just see you later in heaven! Your sister, With much love, Bernice
We are praying for the family during this time.
Paul, Cindy and Family
You’re all in our thoughts and prayers. It’s comforting to know that Charlie is finally at peace and is with our Lord.
