As an Activities Volunteer, I was able to spend some time with Charles (I called him Charley) while he was at the Otterbein Home. He was struggling with a lot of disabilities but he was always determined to carry out what we asked him to do. I admired his determination and always enjoyed my time with him. May you have peace of heart and mind as you remember him in time to come. Linda Stafford
