Charlie P. Obituary and Memorial Page

Postby Dallas » Fri Apr 22, 2011 3:39 am

Charlie, my words cannot express my gratitude for you and Joe McQ. I wouldn't be alive let alone sober and alive living the good life that I live today had God not directed me to you and allowed me to listen to the two of you explain the Big Book to me. I was six months sober, on my 2nd attempt at sobriety and I was at the jumping off place. Sobriety was killing me. While I was contemplating driving my truck into the side of a train to end the pain -- on my last phone call to an AA for help -- I ended up in a Serenity Book Store, in Encino, CA., and found a set of Big Book Study tapes and I bought them. I noticed on the cover it said something about an AA Plan of Recovery in the Big Book. I didn't know there was a program of recovery in AA. I had been told just don't drink and go to meetings and make it up as you go. I postponed driving into the train long enough to listen to all six tapes. Had what I heard not worked, it was over for me. I took the 12 Steps, reading the Big Book and listening to the tapes, and had a Spiritual Awakening that has allowed me to recover. That was in 1987. My sobriety date is Nov. 14th. 1986. And, I haven't had a drink for the last 8,925 days in a row. Thank you for the times you've taken my calls and for allowing me to visit with you in your home, and to spend some time with you. I appreciate you and appreciate all the ways that you've helped me -- to achieve and maintain my sobriety. God bless you and your wife.
