  So sad.  He's always been one of my favorites.

Bill Charles wrote the most romantic poetry here - and displayed it beautifully.  I'll miss his kindness in his responses to my poetry.  I'll miss his poetry and photographs.  And, I'll miss him.

How incredibly sad...
Bill was a friend to man;
so rare when someone is a friend
to all they meet, with sincere warmth and gentleness of spirit that sha'nt
be duplicated.

BC, I know in my heart of hearts that you know of the legacy of love and respect you leave behind. My dear troubadour, I have been missing you for some time and am saddened to learn of your trials and tribulations to which you have now finally succumbed.You truly are (and will continue to be on these blue pages) a Renaissance Man. Your talents were bigger than your life and they will live on. With fond memories I recall our poetic collaboration as well as our mutual love for the guitar. I enjoyed our commaraderie ~ especially in those early pip years.
You and your loved ones are in my prayers.
God speed, BC from BC!!!

Love & Eternal Light,

My union with all of you throughout the years has always been broken up by lengths of absence but you have never been very far away from my heart. I hardly ever go to the discussions pages, and this isn't the first time that I felt drawn here to do so, to then find out some terribly sad news, like this about our dear friend Bill. At first I read that he was severly ill, thinking I could at the very least send some parting words to my sweet buddy... but then I got down to the part where Ron announced that he, had passed on... and I just sat there, reading, and rereading those words, over and over, and over... it seeming so quick, and unreal, and so, absolute, and final. I am still just sitting here trying to find the words, but no matter what you write, how could it ever seem enough, these last thoughts about a man who always had nothing but love in his heart, and warm and positive things to say to each and everyone of us...  Goodbye my dear friend, as sad as I am right now, thanks for bringing me here to let me know that you are now at peace... you brought sooo many wonderful thoughts and feelings to so many here over the years, and for that, you will continue to etch those special feelings of life and relationships, through us, and the people that we inspire and so on ad infinitum...

... rest well dear man.. rest well.

Dear Poet friends, I read your words for our dear Bill and I am very moved. The connection we had with this gentle and loving soul is very much felt. He will not be forgotten.

I am so sorry to hear this. Bill was a dear man with a gentle and loving character which shone so beautifully through his words. My thoughts are with his family.

Oh, no... I am so very sorry to learn of Bill's passing. He was a gentleman and a gentle man and his writes of romance were always sheer pleasure to read.

Rest in peace, Bill.

So sad to hear of this news

Life Is Not Permanent
~Ruth Kephart~

Life: it is not permanent
You knew that from the start
And so you took each breath, each sigh
That captured your own heart
Then penned it here for us to read
Long after you were gone
Your very own remembrance left
So you might carry on

Life: it is not permanent
Though you will always live
For in this greedy world of ours
You took the time to give
A fragment of your very life
A glimpse into your soul
Composed in words of poetry
Your loving hands inscrolled

Life: it is not permanent
Though not for death I yearn
I still canít help but smile to think
That when it is my turn
Youíll welcome me in open arms
With Shelly, Byron, Yeats
And all those poets gone before
Inside of heavenís gates
Looking forward to meeting you someday Bill, as well as my other poet friends who have passed on, on the other side of those pearly gates.

I haven't been here for a while and just found this post. So sad to read that Bill has passed away. May his soul rest in peace.
I've always enjoyed reading his poetry.

Like scattered words will flow
