    I am thankful to have known Mr. Singleton in my youth. I met Mr. and Mrs. Singleton when they attended the Pennsylvania Church of Christ in Albuquerque, New Mexico. As a couple they were always helpful with our youth group, kind, and loving people with wonderful children who are now grandparents themselves. I was blessed to know them and to be influenced by them. Peace be with you all.

    Charles was a dedicated and humble servant who greatly cared for others. To be around him was inspiring if one understood all the good he had accomplished in seeking to lift others up both educationally and spiritually. There are literally hundreds of students and inmates whose lives are better because he inspired hope. ..... It is difficult to say enough good about him.
