I suppose most of us have been to at least one funeral service that was more perfunctory than pious, a farewell for someone few would miss. My Seeing Charlie Off was inspired, a half-dozen years ago, by such a service. I wasn’t sure anyone would want to publish it — until I ran across Cleaning Up Glitter. “We are here to explore the Human Condition,” says founder Amy Tortorella Walsh, “. . . anything that explores your life views, existence, mortality, spirituality, conflict. . . .”
So I sent her Charlie; she liked it, and published it last spring — online, in rather small type. You can read it there ==>>.
But now that I’ve gotten the copyright back (after an unusually long six months), you may find it easier t0 read here==>>
