Celebrating the life of Charles Crawford Corriher Jr

Although technically I am Chuck's Aunt, I always felt more like his big sister. In fact when I called him on the phone he would always say, "Hi Sis". There have been times through the years that I wanted to "pinch his head off" for some of the decisions that he made but at other times I was amazed at his talents. He wrote poetry, was a wonderful artist, woodworker,electrician, plumber.... You name it, he could do it. He loved all animals; his dogs, Tiger the puny cat who grew into a giant, his birds that would climb into their cage on a long ladder he made for them out of matchsticks to the guinea pig that he loved so much. He could talk to anyone and seemed to always find someone he knew when we went on trips.
I watched him struggle as an infant. He was born with no sweat glands or oil glands. At times, he looked like a snake shedding it's skin. Doctor's didn't know what to do or how to treat him. I can only imagine the pain that he went through.
When he was 4 years old, his father died suddenly. My sister, Anne, did the best she could to raise her only child by herself. She did everything that she could for him.
Although Chuck chose the wrong paths many times growing up, our parents said, "to never give up on him". Sometimes the only thing we could do was pray for him.
I continue to pray even though his life has ended here on earth. I pray that his mother, Anne and his daughter Wendi will be comforted by God's loving arms. For his granddaughter Lilly, who will never know him, I hope that one day she will be able to read what those who loved him wrote.
His suffering has ended. He is at peace. I'm sure that he is finally getting to know his earthly father and his heavenly Father. We will meet again and I'll smile as he says, "Hi Sis".
