Welcome to Paradise, Charley! Save us a seat.
Charley joked about using his “keen intellectual mind”; then his sponsor would actually set him straight. We nodded and laughed at ourselves in unison. That laughter was healing medicine. Charley & Joe brought our textbook to life in a masterful way and presented with the utmost humility. It was always about our Loving Higher Power, expressed through the Program. I watched Charley present the Seminar over 4 long days. By Sunday noon, we were spiritually “on-fire” yet exhausted and ready to head home for rest. As I head home, I see Charley off in a corner listening to a man’s 5th Step Inventory. That was classic “Charley”. And, thanks to his years of oversight, The Wilson House and Dr. Bob’s House will be maintained for generations to come. What an able example of Love and Service. Charley will be remembered by me as a disciple of my Loving God, who could also tell a real good joke.
