Awwwww, :-) Thank you Tracey for such a wonderful way to end a day. How much less “need” there would be in this world if we could all just eliminate some of our “wants” for the sake of lessening the burdens of others.

Thanks for this story! What a LIFE! Charlie is still touching lives today! I am so grateful for all he did to make such a difference in so many lives! Thank you for keeping his legacy alive! Tremendously Thankful,
Thanks for sharing this story. I am a pastor here in Alaska! Charlie was a tremendous influence in my life! I met him years ago in San Jose, CA. I will never forget that big hug he gave me! His book and tapes have blessed me more than words can express. Thanks for sharing and thanks for all you are still doing to honor his legacy. Merry Christmas
Hi James, he (Deacon) sure was. And I bet you’re right about the banker too:-) Thank you for reading and for your comments about Dad and his story!
Tracey, Your father shared with me that your grandfather was a Freemason. I would be willing to wager that the banker was too!
Merry Christmas & thank you for a wonderful story!
Great idea for presenting Blessed Christmas.
You too Phil! And yes, it sure does remind me of “It’s a Wonderful Life”, one of my all time favorite movies:-)
Thank You Tracey for sharing this powerful,heartwarming Christmas story!…it’s right in there with “It’s a Wonderful Life!” (this account resonates very strongly in my heart and mind—makes one think)—thank you!
Wishing you and the entire Tremendous Jones family a most Blessed Christmas!!
Pastor Alan, you are most welcome! Thank you for taking the time to read this story and write me a note of encouragement:-)
Pastor Alan, thank you so much for sharing your times with Dad and for all you do too!!! I am glad you got to experience a hug in person:-) Merry Christmas to you and yours.
Hi tremendous Chuck! You are so right. I just think about the many blessings we are capable of bestowing on others and how we end up more blessed than the receiver:-)
You are most welcome Bill. He really had an empathy for people and think alot of it stemmed from his humble start. Have a wonderful Christmas!
Thank you so much for sharing that awesome story. I never had the honor to meet your father, but if you are anything like him, I am sure he was an inspiration to many people.
You are most welcome Dan! Thank you for the read and the comments you left. I love your closing, “Tremendously One in Christ”! Amen!
Thank you Tracey!!
What a wonderful reminder of God’s love demonstrated as a public display when Christ gave us His life in death for our sins and then in His resurrection gave us His life as our righteousness and justification. Thank you for your great example of letting Christ express Himself through you. May all of us Christ’ Ones allow Him to do the same in us and then through us.
Tremendously One In Christ,
