When Charles and I were at the beginning of our relationship and trying to make plans to meet, some things came up that made me believe it wasn’t going to happen. And I was devastated. I was so upset as I drove home from clinicals and I felt the only place I could go was […]

A Friend that Sticks Closer than a Brother

This Saturday I will be attending a dinner for the Lambda Chi fraternity where they will be giving out the Charles Reed Service Award. I’m pretty sure I won’t need to wear any mascara that night unless it’s waterproof 😉. I know this would make Charles proud because he loved his brothers. The friendships he […]
