And you can help celebrate what would have been his 100th Birthday!
For 30 years he did a simple act of kindness – standing on the corner by his house and waving with big day-glow gloves!
People would go out of their way to drive by Mr. Charles’ house.
I sure did.
When we bought our home in Thousand Oaks, we had to have the sale confirmed by the court. I ran down Martin Luther King and shouted to Mr. Charles “Wish Me Luck”
He shouted out “GOOD Luck … and have a GOOD Day!”
And it was – the sale was confirmed by the court and we’ve been in our home since 1982!
That’s just one of the reasons I attended, and spoke at, Mr. Charles’ funeral.
Mr. Charles – Thank you for making people happy!
Here’s the information from his Facebook Fan Page
