Sad Times

Dear friends of ours lost their son this weekend in a tragic accident. We pray for their family and friends as we all mourn the loss of Charles Knox Alford. This family has been through a lot this past year, as Charles' father was in a tractor accident and was paralyzed from the waist down. You can read their story in this month's Reader's Digest.

CHARLES KNOX ALFORD November 30, 1992-February 13, 2009
Charles Knox Alford, beloved son and brother, passed away suddenly on February 13, 2009, as a result of a truly tragic car accident. Charles, age 16, was the son of Mary and Gene Alford and the adored little brother of John and Bess. Charles was born at The Methodist Hospital in Houston, Texas on November 30, 1992. He was the third child, the cherished baby of the Alford clan and he grew up encompassed by the love of his family. Charles, known as "Charlie Bear" by his family and "Chico" by his friends, was a kind, loyal and exuberant young man. Charles always had a smile on his face and greeted everyone he met with a happy, positive outlook and warm spirit. He was loved by all who had the honor of knowing him.
