Memories Timeline


  1. Chip and all of Charlie’s family… I was so sorry to hear of Charlie’s passing. While I didn’t really know Charlie, Jim spoken of him so often that I feel that I did. He was a part of Brown & Bigelow for so many years. My condolences to all of you.

  2. Cindy, Carl, Chip, and Judith

    Sadly, our brood cannot attend on Thursday. I adored both your parents. That Uncle Charlie could sell snow in the North Pole. Your mother’s quiet charm and grace commingled with Charlie’s sense of humor, warmest of hugs, a good listener and the life of the party in all of Georgia resulting in a true “opposites attract” example of lasting love til “death do we part.” I met Judith only once, but found her to be a very special woman with style and warmth. I know she will miss him every day. In my experience the loss of the second parent forges a unique path of grief and loss. We celebrate an eternal life, yes, but it’s the fact that they dwell in our very memories, hearts, and souls for eternity that compels me to believe that part of the kingdom of heaven is found on earth – in the here and now – then again more fully when our souls depart from this earthly life. Please laugh and laugh in the midst of the tears as memories are shared. I raise a glass in solidarity with you and yours whom they loved most, along with all the thousands of friends and family Uncle Charlie and Aunt Mary held dear on their journey here on earth. Big hug…

  3. To All of Charlie’s Family –

    I first met Charlie in 1997 when I joined Brown & Bigelow as his manager. He had already built his reputation as one of the company’s best calendar sales people. He was an absolute joy to manage – always positive, always willing to teach another his secrets to successful sales, and always a gentleman! We missed him after he decided to retire and we’ll miss him even more now. My condolences to the entire family.
