We miss Dad every day, but know that he is looking down on us all, and his been giving strength to Mom, as she battled ovarian cancer this last year, resulting in a remarkable recovery.
2013 was a difficult year for the family, but we all made it through and 2014 has been much better.
Love you Dad."

"When I think of a few key people who have helped me in my life, I remember Charlie.  He was both the brother I never had and the father I wish that I had.  And he was a caring friend for 40 years.

It's hard to believe that Charlie has been gone for a full year.

My best wishes to all the friends and family in handling this one year milestone."

I love you dearly Grandpa Tippett! May the angels sing on your day today! Lets have some coffee and chat grandpa :)"

"I began working at E & E Insurance in 1966.  Within a year I became Mr. Tippett's secretary and worked for him for around 6 years.  He was a great boss and a wonderful man!  I remember typing some school papers for Steve during that time!  He and his wife were always very nice to me.  I am sure your family will miss him so much."

"When Charlie was Executive Vice President of Educator and Executive Insurance, he recruited me to work for him in 1973.  The career change was, for me, a major move that made me feel somewhat apprehensive.  Charlie immediately became my guide and mentor, and helped me gain the confidence I needed to succeed under him--and later in my other business ventures.  I owe much of my success to him"
