My condolences to Kim and your family.  I a m glad to have known Charles during the last year, when he joined the on-line Penn Medicine grief group.  Charles added so much of kindness and sharing of his Christian faith.  Our sharing made it better for all, and his faith in the Lord in many ways helped me dealing with my own loss.  Thank you Kim for your care and support of Charles during this time.  God bless you and your family, Ib Steinmetz
