I, Debra Lynn Webb was 5 1/2 months old when my father, Charles R. Oglesby died. I never new my father but whenever he was spoken about, it was nothing but the best words out of anyone's mouth. Never heard of anything bad. Many times I sat at his graveside, telling him my life of growing up. I am very proud of him in his short life.
Love you Dad.
