Some people choose to do the right thing because it is right. They aren’t concerned with reward or gratitude of the recipient. Charles Chaffin was one of those people. He chose to take in the orphaned boys of his wife’s brother and give them a home. I can only imagine what chaos was created in that decision, but he chose it and was faithful in providing a safe environment. He ran the race with endurance and crossed the finish line yesterday, a life well lived. My tribe of five is eternally grateful for his contribution to those boys. I happen to be married to one of them. Our lives have been changed for good because of his generosity and choosing to do what was right.
We love you and are grateful beyond words for what you have done for our family, Uncle Charles. May you rest in peace.
