The family would also like to thank Crystal Ball who was a longtime family friend and caregiver of Papa C. We greatly appreciate everything she has done for not only Papa C but the entire family as well. The family would also like to thank Gentiva of Washington, NC for the hospice care they provided over the last year and a half.

Papa C loved his grandchildren very much and could always be seen at every ballfield with a hot dog in hand or any other events involving them. He will be missed greatly by each one of them. We love you Papa C.
