Charles would visit my office regularly and since I had manyof his patients sometimes one would be in the chair when he came back. It was like a homecoming of great cheer when they saw him. I am pretty boring, He- it was said- sang to his patients. They loved him. We will miss you Charles. Sorry for the loss. Sorry for a good man to have to suffer through all that treatment, but I would have done the same thing. He will be missed by many.
