So sorry for your loss. Death is such an unnatural thing. Many have found comfort in the words of Revelation 21:4 which says: "..death will be no more neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away." This is what our purposed from the beginning life without death. Please visit to learn more about this hope. Sherry

I am so sorry for your loss. May you find comfort in your loving memories of Charles and in God's promise that the last enemy, death is to be brought to nothing. (1Corinthians 15:26) Acts 24:15 gives us the hope of a resurrection right here on earth until that time. (Psalm 37:11, 29) I hope this brings you peace.
