My Family Has One Less

This passed Saturday was 10 days before my Sister and her Husband's 27 year anniversary. But unfortunately they will not be able to celebrate together this year since my Brother-n-Law, Charlie Scharf, passed away on June 20, 2009 at 9:40 am at the age of 64 at the Carbondale Memorial Hospital while in the arms of my Sister, Terry Lee Scharf.

Today are the services in just a couple short hours. Charlie was a donor and he chose to be cremated, so there will not be an open casket. Charlie was a very unique character. He loved to be out on the water in their pontoon boat and loved to fish. He loved to aggravate me in the name of fun. Especially when I was a bartender and he would stop in for a few drinks. He will be sadly missed by many, including his wife, children, grandchildren and even one great grandchild, friends and family, along with his fur baby, Little Bit, who doesn't understand that daddy is not coming home.

Services are at the Searbys Funeral Home in DuQuoin, Illinois and they have an on-line registry if you would like to send your condolence, here. On the left side you will see the link for Charles Scharf. Thank You in advance.

Remember to tell those you love that you do as you never know when it will be too late to say those three very important words.


  1. So sorry to hear of your loss....take care.

  2. I am so sorry to hear about your loss. My thoughts and prayers will be with you and your family during this very sad time.

  3. BrendaLea,
    So sorry for your loss. Your family will be in my prayers.

  4. So sorry for your loss. Your family is in my thoughts and prayers. Brenda Lea

  5. So sorry for your family loss. I tell my family every day that I love them! Whether it be hanging up the phone, or just going to the store - I always say I love you. You just never know!

    thanks for sharing a little bit of Charlie with us.
