Mr. Charles was a very fine man that meant so much to those who knew him. He was always willing to lend a helping hand to those in need as he did me many years ago. His children are very blessed to have been raised by such good, humbled, and Christian parents. Lisa, you are a Saint for always being there. I know you are so thankful for having him so long.

May God wrap His arms tightly around each of you and give you strength, peace, and love as only He can as you pass through the Valley of the Shadow of Death. Mr. McVey was a wonderful man and a testament to the love of himself and his wife....and children. Hugs and prayers for all of you.
