Celebrating the life of Charles Linberg Brindel
Thank you for signing Charles Linberg Brindel's Guestbook
Solomon wrote at Eccl. 7:1 that a good name is better than good oil. Good oil is soothing and refreshing and a valuable commodity. Yet a fine and good reputation with others is more valuable and more desirable that having good oil especially so if we have a good name with the Creator. The American Standard Version translated Mal 3:16 this way: “Then they that feared Jehovah spake one with another; and Jehovah heartened, and heard, and a book of remembrance was written before him, for them that feared Jehovah, and that thought upon his name.” Yes these ones will be among those that Jesus mentioned at John 5:28. The hope of the resurrection provides great comfort. May it do that for the family.

Hello Brindel Family, I'm a neighbor living in the area.
Having heard of your most recent loss, I want to leave you a brief post. I too, well know the grief of losing love ones, and that at times like these, it is encouraging just to know that others are thinking about us. Something that has really helped me to cope with such losses, is the wonderful promise of Christ Jesus, recorded for our comfort at John 5 :28,29. I hope, that when you are feeling up to it, that you are going to look up these powerful Scriptures,in your copy of The Bible. Also, I hope that this brief note, finds The Family feeling as good as can be expected Today.
With Greatest Sympathy, Your Neighbor : P.D.Walker.

Goodbye, old friend but your memories will remain until, I, too, pass on to another world. Whether it be business or pleasure it was always a joy to meet and greet Charlie and maybe play a little golf. .Always good to be around and was ready to lend an ear or a helping hand. It's a pleasure to have shared our times and conversations together and talk about our military affiliations. Charlie instilled many good characteristics in the folks he met and worked with. I shall never forget the wonderful times we were able to share and enjoy. You are gone old friend but the memories will remain with me forever. Glad to call you my friend and golfing partner..

Charlie was a bigger-than-life personality who brought order and a positive direction for the Coastal Carolinas Association of REALTORS. I had the pleasure of working with Charlie on many levels and always appreciated his views and guidance. Those who knew him, know that he could also pinch a penny and it was that side of him that helped our Association thrive. He was the first to tell anyone who would listen that he asked his staff to use both sides of the toilet paper. Charlie, you are missed, but never will be forgotten! RIP my friend. Rod Smith, Past President CCAR
