I will never forget my friend Charles. He had a heart of gold. I work where he lived and just about saw him every day. We've had lots of conversations and found out how small the world really is after he told me that his daughter lives in Hughes, AR and that happens to be where I graduated high school! We both love to listen to books on CD. He kept an extensive library and let me borrow as many as I wanted all the time. I will miss you Charles, very much! The picture is one that I took for him the first time he ran for a position on our Board.
