I will always remember going to Harrell\\\'s barbershop from the time I was 8 until I was about 19. I can still see Mr. Harrell and Jim Locklear cutting my hair when I was about 10 and was wearing my hair in a flattop. Then I got to high school and let my hair grow long and now it was Mr. Harrell and his Hippie son Carl cutting our hair. May you rest in peace Mr. Harrell as I have nothing but very fond memories osf you and the barbershop. Sanfra, Carl and Jeff you all have my condolances and it truly was great to grow up in the Combee and East Lakeland area with ya\\\'ll.

I remember Charles as a wonderfully funny man with always a good story to tell. He loved his garden and I had the wonderful opportunity to be his guest for dinner with his fresh produce. I\'ll never forget him or Gladys and their warm hospitality. My sympathy to Sanfra & Michelle & the rest of the family.
