I hate to hear that.
I haven't "talked" with Charles since I stopped frequenting the pub, but I remember him fondly. Always jovial, courteous and positive. (my exact opposite) The TMF family has lost an excellent member.

My deepest, heartfelt condolence to the family.

Hey Jim,

Thanks for posting this here. Josie sent me the link.


Hey Everyone,

Obviously, I'm neither a poster nor a lurker here, but I've been a bit disorganized about all this (sorry) and wanted to offer some updated info.

Karen said she will not be checking Charles' e-mail until next week after things settled down a bit for her. If y'all have Charles' e-mail addy, you might wanna send an e-mail with his name in the "subject line" so that Karen will "see" that e-mail and check it as she might not go through everything...At least not right away.

I will be collecting cards to forward to Karen. I do not feel comfortable sharing her address with Fools I may not know, but if y'all e-mail me Offline, I will give you my address and will forward anything sent here to her.

Of course if you'd prefer, you should be able to send anything to her at the funeral home...Call them first to make sure though.

The funeral home info is:

Henry S. Washington & Sons Co., Inc.
4925 Nannie Helen Burroughs Ave Ne
Washington DC 20019
(202) 398-6700

I found out today that they do not have a web site.

His obituary is supposed to be listed in this Friday's Washington Post. The WP Online requires an account to read their obituary listings and I will link to it when I finally see it, on the BBQ Board.

However, if you e-mail me Offline on Friday, I will respond with the link to his obituary.

Sorry, but it's a bit difficult for me to keep up with all the e-mails and various boards.

However, I am collecting links to the boards that have posted about Charles and will send Karen all individual posts so that she'll see just how much Charles is loved by his Fool Friends. Please know that I will not be responding individually to all Fool Posts...There are just too many.

And, if you see a post on another board about Charles, please send me the link so that I can collect these for Karen. Thanks!!

I did not know the poster, crobinso, but I extend my sympathies to those who did. Following threads to other boards and reading the posts on this one makes it apparent that a link is missing at TMF with his passing. It is always amazing how the internet connects people who might never have met.

Hey Donna,

Following threads to other boards and reading the posts on this one makes it apparent that a link is missing at TMF with his passing.

Looks like enough TMF'ers liked Charles as well since they included the notice about his passing in today's newsletter...

BTW, for all'a y'all...I have finally been able to start gathering posts for Karen to read...

Hey Jim,

Nice job ßillƒ, excellent way to remember him.

Thanks. I'm sure any other Fool would be dong the same if they'd spoken with Karen first and she asked them for their help.

*************

Charles' obituary has been posted in today's Washington Post Online. You'll need a free account in order to both see the obituary and to sign the guest book.

However, I did add the obituary info on his BBQ Fools page...
