Peggy, I am so sorry to hear about Charlie. He will be missed by all who love him. В He was so good about keeping in touch with Leon and I enjoyed talking to him when he called. He and LEON can now talk about the telephone company all they want. В Will forever miss them both. My love and condolences to you and your family. Faye Murphy Bailey

“Life is short and we don’t have much time to gladden the hearts of those that travel with us so be swift to love and make haste to be kind and go in PEACE to love and serve the Lord.”
This man lived this every day. He will be sorely missed.

I have lost my BEST FRIEND of 79+ years. Charles & I first met up at 5 years of age in kindergarten at Rose Hill Grammar School. We had an awesome journey as friends throughout those 79+ years. If there were to be a comparison of our rock solid friendship it would be found in the Book of Proverbs in which says there is a friend that sticks closer than a brother. Charles Batastini was that brother. Over the years as we stood by each other as we buried kith & kin we both found encouragement & strength from the teachings of the Apostle Paul found in 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18. We will meet up again.

I will never forget and have always remembered the acts of personal kindness though many, many years ago on way more than 1 occasion that Charles extended to me and my family when I needed him. A true servant of God .
