My sympathy goes out to Mr. Red’s Family. I knew him only as a very good pool shooter, who kicked my butt more than once. He was always a gentleman, quiet
and courteous.

There is no doubt in my mind whatsoever that The Good Lord has accepted him with open arms !

God Bless his entire Family and Friends that knew him.

Tom Hyland. 😇😇😇

Cathy, Patty, Chuck, Mike & Family,
We are so saddened to hear the news of your dear father's passing. We have always enjoyed being in the company of your family. We remember your dad for the jokes he would tell and his easy carefree personality. He was always there for his family when needed. We especially remember his devotion to his mother when she needed assistance while in her home and then later at the nursing home before her death. He will live on in each of his children & grandchildren through your good deeds and generous hearts. We will miss him at your annual Memorial Day celebrations. RIP Uncle Charles.
Love, Bernie & Lori Uhden

So many nice things to say about my Uncle and his family, but not enough space in this box to write them all. One of the hardest things about living in another state is when a loved once passes. My heart breaks for your loss and weeps because my wife Sharon and I cannot be there to offer our condolences in person.

To my Uncle Reds, thanks for all the memories and laughs. I will always remember crabbing with you on the Wye River and the shark that scared the crap out of me; rest in peace. To the Uhden family, our prayers are with you all. From the Snyder's of Tampa Bay

My deepest sympathy for your loss. May our Heavenly Father Jehovah strengthen you with His promise to swallow up death forever and soon end all our suffering. (Rev. 21:3-5; Isa. 25:8) May His promises also comfort you during this difficult time.
