I have listened to the CD's of the big book studies by Joe and Charlie many times. They were my "co-pilots" on many long drives through the back roads of Manitoba and were always a source of inspiration and hope that I could get and stay sober. Charlie's passion for the big book made him a hero to me. with sympathy Jan G

Charlie and Joe kept things simple and provided the best step guidance I've seen in over 27 years of continuous sobriety (thanks to folks like Joe and Charlie). I am so sorry for our loss! Best wishes and lots of prayers to Charlie's family. God bless, Marcia Henning

It was in early in July 1986, after I was "invited" by a local Judge to attend AA, that I found myself gripped by the fear that I might drink again. After only several days of going without, I was so shaken by the thought of going back to jail for taking a drink, that I axiously made my way to an AA meeting several miles from where I was residing (my mothers home). The meeting, according to the shcedule I was given from the first time I reluctantly arrived, stated that there was an open, discussion meeting begining at 1:00 PM. When I arrived, I noted that there were no vehicles in the parking lot but I amde my way inside, determined not to drink. To my horror...no one was there! Where was that hand of AA reaching out to meet me? I thought. Too afraid to leave, I sat down and noticed a casset player on a coffee table. Next to it was a set of tapes called "
The Big Book Comes Alive". I knew little of our text at that time and had not really read anything from it. I put in tape 1 and heard a man say that his name was Charlie and that he had not found it necessary to take a drink for...I thought he said several thousand days! I was agast! No one could possibly have not had a drink for that long! I also heard a fellow call himself Joe...he also claimed several thousand days without one single drink! I thought that this must be a comedy tape to ease the discomfort of the alcoholics...actually it was quite funny and for the first time in years, I found myself laughing out loud so hard that it hurt my stomach!
People in AA ahd told me of this "Big Book" and I thought, how could a book written by some old drunks in 1939 have any significance to me and MY problems. As I listened to those tapes the first time, I suddenly realized that, God had pput me exactly where I needed to be to hear AA's message of hope and recovery. AA and I will dearly miss these two good souls who led me to where the answers to all my problems are; the Big Book of AA. thanks to God and AA, I hvae not found it necessary to take a drink or any mind or mood altering substances now for 9071 today. God Bless

Thank you for sharing Charlie with us. I am sure it was not easy to have him away so much. He had a gift that he passed on to others
