Send Off for Charles Bailey

I'm reaching out to everyone who knew  and loved Charles Hendey Bailey.   For those who knew him and knew him well he was more than just a trainer or an acquaintance. When you became friends with Charles you became friends for life.  You didn't just like Charles- you ended up loving him.   He  became a confidante to to most of us.   Anyone of us could call Charles day or night and he would give you his undivided attention as well as what you needed to hear, even if you didn't like what he had to say.    When you told Charles something he locked it up and he would never betray a confidence.  His laughter, wit and also his wisdom knew no bounds.  We lost Charles on Monday, November 20th 2017, at the oh so young age of 54.  His mother Falcona, has made the trip  from Antigua to bury her son.  No mother should ever have to bury their child no matter what age.  She has  selflessly decided to bury Charles in Jacksonville so all those who knew and loved him could pay their final respects to this fine man.  However, she is limited in her financial ability to do so.   I am asking anyone for a small donation whether it be $5 or $10 to help lay Charles  to rest where he belongs.  If you can find it in your heart to do so,  I know Charles would be smiling down on all of us right now and Thanking us for taking care of his mother.  His mother meant the world to him and it would break his heart if he was still here knowing  that she  is suffering in order to do what's right for her first born son.
