Oranges are hilarious

Charles is not pictured in this video but he is filming it at the Family School, the therapeutic boarding school he attended in upstate New York. A lot of students from this school have died from suicide (my son), overdose, accident related to drugs/alcohol. Too many.

The young man they are tickling has a distinctive laugh and they wanted to capture it on video which they were successful doing.

That voice. I miss Charles’ voice so much and I ache to hear it again.

Someone published this video recently on Facebook and I had never seen it.  There is nothing spectacular going on in this video. But when you’ve lost someone so precious, anything you get or find is a treasure. There are no new memories so I’m thrilled with any picture, video, story I have not seen or heard before.

This is a gift and I’m happy to have it.
