There is a  memorial to Charles C.

Storms may come, and they will for no ship ever sailed the seas but had to face the storm. If it is strong from keel to top, bow to stern, well maintained and intelligently directed, it rides the storm and goes on it’s way. So you will meet obstacles, storms. If you are strong in faith, clear headed, honest, trusting for divine guidance and with a character built on the solid rock, you will meet all troubles in your life victoriously.” (quoted by Charles C. Chapman).
