To the family of Charles, I became friends with Charles when I came to the Ephrata Nursing Home aboujt a year ago. He saw me taking pictures one evening when our church choir was there to sing to one of our members who is a resident there. It was her birthday. The next time I came to visit Charles had the N A send me over to his table. He had questions about my camera. So we became friends, So when ever I stopper in I stopped over with Charles It usually had to do with photographs.. I even took a grat picture of Charlie. He was a great listener as well as conversatalist Well Charlie and I always had a great time, but the last time I came to visit, I learned a lesson. Charlie passed away. My friend. When I think of all the topics we talked about' He loved his children and his grandchldren.. He talked about this son who passed away. All I can say is, I couldn't be there. I had no ride. I had to come when I could get a ride. I didn't drive. So all I can say is, " my dear friend Charlie, I will miss you and one day we will meet again. So here is is a kiss for your forehead and now be with your son.
