Bro. Charles was an example to all in his walk with Christ and in the way he loved others. He was an awesome prayer warrior and our family felt honored to be on the receiving end of both his love and prayers. He was a hero for Christ and someone we looked up too. He will be greatly missed here but we know that his home going is a great celebration in Heaven. We pray that his family will feel the presence of the Lord around them and be comforted during this very difficult time. We love you all!

I was so sad to hear about Charles. He meant a lot to me when I went to Bethel before moving to Columbus, Ga 4 months ago. He was a very sweet man and we all loved him. He will be greatly missed.

Linda and family,

I am deeply saddened to hear of Charles passing. He was such a good person, always helping others no matter how he felt. Linda I was the Care Services person for the Alabama Chapter and that is how we met. I live in NC now. I know he is with the Lord and at peace. He will always be in your hearts and the hearts of everyone he met. I will never forget him.

Dear Johnson Family,
I am writing to extend my condolences. Mere words cannot convey the feelings of disbelief and sorrow that result from losing someone you dearly love. Please do not dismay, for God has a purpose for those who are sleeping in death.
In the book of John 5:28, 29 Jesus says, All in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out. Yes, your dear loved one will live again, so don’t think of your loss as permanent. Also, Ecclesiastes 9:5 says that, the dead are conscious of nothing at all. How comforting to know that our dear loved ones are not suffering!
It is my sincere hope that you get a great measure of comfort from the Holy Scriptures.
