Dear Judy and Karen and family, I have many memories of cousin Butch...mostly sitting at our kitchen table with Mom and Dad having a good chat and visit. I remember Uncle Charles' roses and how you have carried on that "ROSE" tradition. I remember your wedding and our family gatherings. May your beautiful family continue those memories and you better take good care of those roses. Love and prayers, Trixie

Our first introduction to Charlie was the Foodbank. He was our teacher on how the foodbank worked. He was a wonderful man who became our friend. To Judy and his wonderful family please accept our deepest sympathy.

Mundey family, I learned today of Charlie's passing, and I was so sorry to hear the news.  He was such a wonderful person and a staple at St. Mark's for so many years.  He will be missed greatly by all, and I wish you peace and healing in this difficult time.  My condolences and prayers and definitely with you, and please let me know if there's anything I can do for any of you in this time of grief.  As I'm sure all of you will, I will also strive to recall the good memories of Charlie and to celebrate his life and legacy.  That legacy is obviously all of you, which I'm certain he would consider to be his greatest achievement.  You are all blessed gifts to St. Mark's and to the world, as was Charlie.  My very best wishes to you as you move forward together as a family.  Peace and Love...

Dearest Judy and family, My sympathy goes out to you and your family. When I think back on my many years growing up at St. Marks Church Charlie was a larger than life part of my memories. He always had a smile and was always helping someone. The loss of Charlie is the loss of a rare gem. He was an icon of the church and will always have a place in my memories as a kind and caring man. Your family is in my thoughts and prayers. GOD Bless!

Mr. Mundey was the first person I met when I came to St. Mark’s Lutheran Church back in 1996, I found him to be quite intimidating as he took me by hand to introduce me to Pastor Coats. Little did I know then that he was the sweet soul that Fathered the kindest person that I have ever known and would come to enjoy a twenty year friendship with. Mr. Mundey’s loving legacy to our community is his four fine Christian Children who serve it beautifully. I smile at his great compassion for humanity thinking of the times I heard him on WJEJ Radio inviting ALL to his home to enjoy his roses. With loving prayers for Judy, Tammy, Sherri, Greg, Julie & Karen
