I, too, used to like to sit next to Charles when I was on General Council. I always gained something from his perspective on whatever matter was before the group. Several years ago he gave me a small poster with a variety of angel illustrations from his collection. And there is a note from him on the back. It is still on the wall in my study.

Charles and I shared a warm regard for one another ever since our first real sit-down in KC years ago when we discussed our mutual love for teaching, which lasted a whole afternoon. And even before that during a GC meeting that I was observing, I found my eyes glancing over, and over again to an angel placed at Charles seat. I told him how I was drawn to it and with an immediate response he picked her up and placed her in my hands, promising she would look after me. She continues to watch over me,,,I sent this to Charles, the moment I read Tom’s email. I look forward to more talks and time with Charles <3
I just read an email from Tom stating that you, my friend may have transitioned over. I had no idea. I want to send you my love and greetings as you travel onward to meet friends and family who went on ahead of you...we are all not too far behind.......
Our meetings throughout the years have always brought a warm glow within. And coming to meet Mary several years ago in Sante Fe, joining one of your studies, then Joe here in NY joining my study and finally meeting your son at Joe's memorial connected me to those who meant the most to you.
As teachers we knew that we had to meet our students where they were and raise them up. We will do that for eternity too. My love and prayers for your entire family.

Hello, my family,
For those of you that don't know, Charles is preparing to depart this wonderful planet and move on to the next journey in life. I believe he is now in the care of hospice. It occurred to me that some of you may want to send a last message to Charles in appreciation of our different relationships we've had with him before he passes as well as our condolences to those left behind after he passes.
Unfortunately, we are too late for that. Charles is on the cusp of transition between this world and the next. Please keep him in your prayers. May he calmly and courageously give his life over to the next level of Spiritual awareness. A true soldier of the Circles and messenger of God.
In the future, if someone we know from our community is getting ready to leave us, wouldn't it be nice if we were to be given a heads up so that we could send our love and courage to help them on their way?
Loving you all madly, Tom Choquette
