    Charleen, David, Ken and families,

    I believe your dad was someone who could say ‘I have fought the good fight. I have finished the course. Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness.” Charlie was the Sunday School teacher for the junior boys class at Christ Chapel in Silver Creek. I was privileged to be in his class. He was a true follower of Jesus. My folks thought highly of Charlie and Millie. I know you will all miss him. As you celebrate his life, keep the stories and memories alive
    Blessings. John Ludeman
