Hoping your memories of Charles helps you through such a difficult time. I just want you all to know that Charles was loved by many! He affected the people that worked at the dialysis center as well as the patients. He was always in the center of something at dialysis. He was our “Clint Eastwood”. We LOVED him very much! What an amazing man even when he was very sick. I will miss his smiling face and his stories about fishing and mowing. My prayers are with you all!!
