Charles' brother David shared this invitation:
Jan, Caroline and myself will be hosting a memorial celebration for our brother Charles who passed away on January 27, 2016 in Woodstock, NY.
- Date: Saturday May 07, 2016
- Time: 2:30 pm - 4:30 pm
- Where: Sarett Nature Center, 2300 Benton Center Road, Benton Harbor, Michigan 49022
This is an open invitation to anyone who knew Charles as a friend or special/casual acquaintance to come and gather to remember him together. Please bring any musical instruments with you as we intend to sing some of his favorite songs from the "Rise Up Singing" song book (bring a copy if you have one).
There will be time for people to share anything they would like; special memories, a song, a poem or a reading that you feel is representative of your connection with Charles or captures his spirit for you in some way.
We apologize if you are not on the distribution list. Please forward this on or post it to include as many people who may have known him; all are welcome. We just do not have everyone's contact information and will count on you to reach out to others.
We will provide coffee & tea, plates & flatware. If you would like, bring something light to eat & share with others (strictly optional); nothing that has to be prepared or heated up. It is helpful to us if you reply to me with the number of people, if you plan on coming. We understand that plans can change, just looking for an idea of how many to help with setting up the Nature Center.
