    Dearest Michele and Family, I am so heart broken for each of you. Charles was such a likeable man and such a joy to be around. The first time I really got to know he and Michele is when I sat with them and her sister at our Sunday School Christmas party. I fell in love with them and left there feeling I had made 3 new close friends. Even tho he is rejoicing with his Heavenly Father, I know each of you miss him very much as I will also. I pray God will give each of you comfort to get through this time.
    Love and Prayers to each of you.

    Michele lost her husband, best friend, lifelong companion, and confident....I lost a brother! I met Charles when he and Michele were dating. Their love was like fireworks and rainbows. I never saw one without the other. They weathered the ups and downs of life with a strength that could only come from God Himself. To me, he was a brother from another Mother. His eyes flashed mischief, his smile infectious, and his sense of humor rivaling the best comedians, he would make me laugh, and feel as though I was on top of the world. He loved his wife Michele with an intensity that made me feel that somehow they were one and the same person in two different skins. As Michele's older sister, he accepted me as part of the family almost immediately, and he became,( in my heart,) my brother. He was kind, considerate, thoughtful, and made me feel important. When I
    would visit them,(which was often,) we would share many cups of coffee on the porch, surrounded by God's nature and his quiet reverence. He was not a morning person and he would tell me with a laugh that my happy was too loud in the morning. So I learned to sit quietly and allow the morning to come into focus before blasting into the day. He is a one of a kind man that I am honored to have known here, and can't wait to see again someday soon.
    Love you bro!

    Doris, I just read about your wonderful son Charles as he used to be called and have fond memories of when he was such a little boy. He was so adorable. I’ve remembered you all these years and just wanted you to know that you are in my heart. Linda

    Charles was a wonderful man, wonderful human being, loving to all. You can judge a person by the way critters react to you. My critters loved him and adored him. I can't say enough nice things about Charles. My heart weeps.
    They say, " the good die young," this is exactly what I feel happened. You're home now Charles.

    Charles Samuel Fadel . Charles snd Michele joined my spiritual zoom meeting a month or so ago . I loved them instantly . Charles was a charismatic man . He oozed love in his smile , his eyes , his hearth and his words. His spirit loved God and his Bible . He especially loved Michele his wife who he nicknamed “junior”. When he spoke of
    Michele who was sitting right by his side, he spoke of her with such love and respect . He would give her frequent kisses when they heard something that blessed them . I am going to miss his laughter and his voice . He had a commanding voice . When he spoke all ears were on him . He was so easy to love and he loved others easily . I am so sad I won’t be able to make it to the memorial for I will be far away . But in honor of him I will spend that day praying for his loved ones . If he made such and impression on me , I cannot imagine the grief his family and wife and sister-in-law laws are experiencing if I only knew him for a month and feel his presence missed . God be with all of those who knew and loved Charles .
