Charles Smith is one of the most common names in the English language yet Charles was anything but common or ordinary. He was much larger than life and rarely tolerated a fool but had a magnanimous spirit for ministry to seeking souls. We will always remember your remarkable stories and wit. Go now and receive the Crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will award to you on that day--and not only to you, but also to all who have longed for His appearing.
