Dear Perry Family: I was so saddened to hear that Charles had passed away. We had conversation at the class reunion (1960-1965 classes)about the procedures involved in the dialysis., as my brother Fred was going through the same thing. He told me how good Barbara Ann was in taking care of this. He was such a special person and knew just the right things to say to families in their time of need and saddness. Ashburn did lose an icon and he will be greatly missed. Your are in thoughts and prayers. Gail Barfield Gandy

The pain we feel when a loved one dies cuts very deep. I am so sorry for your loss. When death strikes, a happy family may be overwhelmed with sadness. “Throw your burden upon Jehovah himself, and he himself will sustain you.” (Psalm 55:22) If talking out your feelings with a sympathetic friend can help, how much more will pouring out your heart to “the God of all comfort” help you!¯2 Corinthians 1:3. May this bring a measure of comfort to you all. My prayers and thoughts are with you all.

During my time with the South Georgia RDC, I had the pleasure of working with Charles on many projects involving the City of Ashburn and the region. He was a fine mayor, and I always admired his willingness to work so hard on behalf of his community, not to get the credit, but to make Ashburn a better place to live and work. And he always had that unique sense of humor that he shared with his friends and family! Charles was a good friend, and he will be missed.

Charles is resting now, and you will not have to see him suffer anymore. He fought a tough battle, but you were his trooper. Your care and love were an encouragement for him each day. Our hearts go out to you duing this most difficult time. May God comfort you and give you strenght. Love, Judy and Phil

How sad to hear about Charles. His knowledge and sharing of history and artifacts was appreciated by so many. The Perry family is special to those in Turner Co. and way beyond.

07/31/2013 Peggy Britt Jolley

To all the Perry family, including Elizabeth. The last time I saw Charles was in 2011 when my Mother passed away. When I saw her, I was amazed at how "Beautiful" my Mother was. When I asked Charles if he had a picture of Mother to do her makeup. His response was: "I didn't need one. Don't forget, I have known her all my life. Her makeup was easy." Charles was a special man, a lot like his Daddy, that always went the extra mile for everybody. He will be sorely missed by so many, especially his family. But all can rejoice in the fact that he left a legacy that will long be remembered and he will never be forgotten. His work on earth has ended, but his work has just begun in Heaven. God bless all of you and may he remain with you in the days, weeks, and months ahead as you adjust to like without him.

In life we are never prepared for the loss of a dear love one, however it's during difficult times such as this that we find comfort in knowing that our Heavenly Father is always with us to lead, to guide, and to comfort. We will miss Mr. Charles'leadership, his quirky sense of humor, and his many impromptu historical lessons. Mrs. Barbara and family please know that you all are very near and dear to us and we are praying for each of you daily. God promised us that He would never leave us nor would He ever forsake us. This promise alone assures you all that as each day passes, He will begin to heal your hearts and souls and He will continuously surround you all with a special love that only He can give. In His presence there is and will always be the fullness of joy. Keep the faith, we love you all, and God bless.

This is such sad news to us all at the Southern Georgia Regional Commission. Charles has served as a Director on our Loan Board since before I was hired 25 years ago and I considered him a friend. Through all of his health issues, he continued to serve with diligence. His guidance was always given with true concern for our success as an agency. Most of all though, I treasured his stories. He was a dear, dear man whose love for his family was apparent in so many ways. He will be terribly missed by us all.

Barbara Ann, all the Perry Family and Stump.. There are no words to take away the pain of losing a loved one but feeling the love and prayers from so many people that care helps to get through it. Charles was a very special person with so many things to share. I loved to just sit and visit with him. I have spent a lot of today going down a lifetime of memories and laughing at so many of them.

i found myself thinking about his life today and for some reason snoopy always entered my mind! he would often show up at the house on haley but not for long! sadly enough the majority of the times that i spoke with him were centered around deaths in my family, but i always enjoyed looking at his civil war collection impressive. todd and i often joke when we are at out of town funerals that "Those folks dont hold a candle to the Perry's!!!" So true...... he will be missed. Please know that our thoughts and prayers are with all of you.
