Original post (January 31, 2017) by Maura Lynch:
Every so often we are lucky enough in life to know a man who by all accounts is so well-loved by everyone who meets him.
Who is caring and modest and interested in others. Who is a gentleman. Who is devoted to his loving wife.
And who is dedicated to his craft. Who is talented, creative, innovative. Who is generous and giving. Who is humble.
Our now-departed dear member, Charlie Hughes, gave us all the opportunity to know such a man. Sadly, he passed away last Thursday.
We will miss him. And on behalf of our entire membership, I want his beloved wife, our colleague and friend, Janey Westin, to know this: we love and support you and wish you peace in this time of sadness at the loss of your dear Charlie.
I extend many thanks to Diane von Arx who, unbidden, created the beautiful remembrance at right.
