We lost a good friend in Nick
Charles on Saturday. Due to the many requests received, please find a
selection of obituary tributes and living tributes from the past year to him.
A memorial service will be scheduled in his beloved
Santa Fe later this summer. Details
will be announced soon. In lieu of flowers, the Charles family has requested
that donations be made in Nick’s memory to World Vision and TEACH NOW, a project dedicated to preventing child labor in the Philippines and
improving those children’s lives. http://bit.ly/ixmnpy
remember Nick’s lessons to us during his brave battle, to embrace life and to
love what you are doing.
