King admitted, "It ain't much money, but somebody's got to do it. I've got a lot of good friends 6 feet under up here. Least I can do is to keep the place looking' halfway decent for them." King had not had his picture taken in years, and would not even allow it for the article, which originally appeared in the Los Angeles Times. "I ain't looking for no glory," he insisted.
Charley King's work and service was admirable--and all for ten dollars a month. But if he could "serve the dead" in such an unselfish manner, shouldn't we be at least as willing to serve the Living, the One who was dead, and now lives forevermore?
