To the Family of Charles Edward Tiggney, Sr.;

There isn’t any way to prepare for the sudden loss of a family member. In the quiet moments when the hurt is hard to bear, may love become your shelter and may the beauty of memories become your comfort.

You have the sympathies of the members of St. Paul’s A.M.E. Church as you make your way through this passage. It won’t be easy, but you can rely on the support of all your friends and church family. Charles will be missed by everyone.

Our prayers are with you and you have our deepest sympathy in this time of sorrow. Charles' time here touched a lot of people. Just look around at his family and friends that are here to celebrate his life.

“Don't weep at my grave, for I am not there,
I've a date with a butterfly to dance in the air.
I'll be singing in the sunshine, wild and free,
Playing tag with the wind, while I'm waiting for thee.”

In His Service Always,
Rev. Alfred L. Thompson, Jr.
And The Members of St. Paul’s A.M.E. Church
