Charlie B. Edwards, Jr.

"The Silence came oh so slow as we wept and watched you go. Calling out to loved ones, name by name, it is comforting to know you are with them again. When all your troubles now have passed, and your body is free of pain at last"

Edwards, Sr. of Smithfield Virginia, one sister Wendy Edwards; two brothers Randy and Steve Edwards; two grandsons William Mullins and Armoni McIntyre; one great granddaughter Armiah Mullins.
