“Forever Loved, Never Forgotten”

The Navy Gold Star Program is eternally grateful for the sacrifice of those Service Members who have died in service to our country. To help us to never forget, we have set up this tribute page to honor and remember the memory of those lives. If you would like to honor the memory of your Sailor, Soldier, Marine, Airman or Coast Guardsman through the Navy Gold Star website please submit your thoughts and a photo.

To my precious second born son, Charles Stuart Cutshaw, when you took your first breath, it literally took my breath away and when I heard of your untimely death, a part of me died.

You are an integral part of our family and your absence is horrifically noticed.  We each know that we will see you again in Heaven as we all have professed faith in Jesus' saving grace.  Nonetheless, I want to hold you one more time.  I want to dance with you one more time.  I want to sing "I'll Love You Forever" one more time. I want to witness your great sense of humor and creativity one more time.

Those days are behind us, but as King David from the Old Testament said when speaking of his dead son, "He cannot come back to me, but I can go to him."  It is with great anticipation that I look forward to the day that we are united in Heaven with our Jesus and so shall we forever be.

We will memorialize you once again on May 4, the second anniversary of your homegoing and we will celebrate your 26th birthday on June 21st.  I lovingly used to tell you that June 21st was the day the angels danced, and I believe May 4, 2020 was a day that the angels cried over our loss of you.

I'm homesick for Heaven like never before and I want to see my precious Jesus first and after that, I want to see you.  My sweet son, you will forever be my Prince Charles.

With all my love-
