A celebration and tribute to the life of Charles S. Kaplan ... my friend, long-time companion and partner for over 25 years.
This photo journal is divided into four sections:
Part One: Pictures of his world travels in the past few years (travel was his number one passion).
Part Two: Pictures dated prior to 1985 (before I met him).
Part Three: Pictures of us together with our friends from 1985-2000.
Part Four: Pictures of Charlie with my family (my parents adored Charlie and I dare say that these were the happiest times of all our lives).
This picture is of Charlie and his best friend Steven Quint when they were in college together. Steven and his son Paul (Charlie's godson) were at the hospital with me a few hours before he died. To this day we all just stare at each other in disbelief that Charlie is no longer with us.
