    Tio Charlie, I can’t express enough how grateful I am for the past few years we’ve had together! You gave me the opportunity to understand myself more and my father, my name the blood that runs through my veins! Stubborn you were all the way till the end but a heart of gold like no other! You loved your family and your daughter with everything you had (a xiques trait I’ve always been told as you all so loved your kids so much) because of you I have the blessing of knowing my cousins and feeling as though I’m part of my fathers family your beloved brother Johnny! Until we meet again thank you for the memories, the love and the laughter ! You are truly missed in so many ways but knowing your out of pain makes my heart ok as I know you are with the Lord now!
    We all love and miss you, Florida misses you
    Rest in Heaven Tio if I know you them feet will never stay still. Xoxoxo
    James, Sonya, Amanda and Kevin Mike

Florida law states “A cremation may not be performed until a legally authorized person gives written authorization for such cremation,” (FS 497.607).  Furthermore, the law defines whom the “legally authorized person” is and sets up the order of priority of next of kin. We require a written authorization before scheduling any cremation or funeral services. The “Authorization for Cremation and Disposition” form must be signed by the next of kin in the following order: spouse, son or daughter (of legal age), parent, brother or sister, grandchild, grandparent.
