Farewell, Charlie

Charlie was removed from the respirator last evening at 5 pm, and passed away this afternoon at 12:30 pm. Patty is exhausted and at home resting now. I'll post arrangements when they have been finalized. We will all miss Charlie, his sense of humor, his optimism, and his willingness to help anybody. Patty, you remain in our prayers.

The Farewell By Manuel Castro

In every life
there comes a time
for giving thanks
and to say goodbye.

Even though you may
be miles apart,
your memories will keep you
close at heart.

So don’t be disheartened
at the thought of distance
that can’t remove the memories;
your heart’s closest treasures.

May you be blessed
in all that you do,
and may you experience
lots of happiness too!

Goodbye for the moment
’till we meet again.
May our friendship be a treasure
that will never end.
