We lost a good friend in Nick Charles on Saturday. Due to the many requests received, please find a selection of obituary tributes and living tributes from the past year to him.

A memorial service will be scheduled in his beloved Santa Fe later this summer. Details will be announced soon. In lieu of flowers, the Charles family has requested that donations be made in Nick’s memory to World Vision and TEACH NOW, a project dedicated to preventing child labor in the Philippines and improving those children’s lives. http://bit.ly/ixmnpy

Let’s all remember Nick’s lessons to us during his brave battle, to embrace life and to love what you are doing.
