Charlie’s Work Will Go On ….

A few years ago, during a very low part of my life, I was asked by a good friend to call Charlie Sanders who needed help with a website he wanted for his new scholarship program. I met this wonderful man and helped him out and it turned into the most fulfilling few years of my life.

I have so many wonderful, fun and even silly memories of our work together, and our friendship, which I will tell as time goes on, but I wanted every one of you who supports the Charlie Sanders Foundation and Have A Heart Save A Life, how much I appreciate your thoughts and prayers. Charlie’s dream to help all of the kids to live longer, stronger, lives and to be healthy and happy, will continue . . . I made that promise to him and I make it to you as well.

All of my love and prayers go to Charlie’s family at this time . . . they need our support more than anything right now, and I know that he will always be watching over them and inspiring all of us to be just like him.

I know I speak for all of our Board members as well in letting you know that the dream goes on . . . and Charlie’s work is not finished . . . that’s our job now.

Miss you Charlie . . .
