Tomorrow is back to school for our students here in Pasco County and I am happy that in another week or so I will start my 10th year of volunteering at my favorite school. It will be the cutest 6-7 year old children eager to learn to read and write among other subjects. It is a heart-felt experience helping a child to feel confident and to know people care about them away from home, too. This is my happy time!
On Wednesday past as I read the town newspaper I noticed the photo of the inside of the Richey Suncoast theater (the auditorium so to speak) and the article stated that my dear friend Charlie Skelton had passed away on July 4. He was the manager of the theater for several years and always had a smile on his face as he handled the ticket sales and never ever lost his cool. He handled people like diamonds and always had your best interests at heart. His wife Marie is the choreographer and the behind the scenes woman of many talents. How very sad for her to lose her husband and her best friend but I am confident the community will help her get through the rough times. For me I cry every time I see his face flash before my eyes and I know come September when I go to the opening show, it will be a three handkerchief afternoon as we will all miss seeing our Charlie up at the podium welcoming everyone and telling his few jokes. This is my sad emotion!
