Remembering Charles 78 years since his birth.
January 20, 2018
I just read about my friend Dr. Armstrong and I'm so sad.
He was a wonderful, kind and humble human being who had love for everyone he crossed paths with. I'll always remember and love this great man.

It was a deep cut on my left index finger that led us to Charles. I believe he had taken over the practice from our previous family physician, or maybe my parents had just heard that he was a fine doctor. I was 19 at the time, and after that first visit, where he so kindly stitched up my finger, the other members of my family also found care and concern for their various ailments, but, beyond that, he soon became a family friend.

My parents, both literary in the extreme, found so much to talk about with him, and he was always a welcomed guest. This held true for decades. He would visit when he came back to Santa Barbara, and, then, when he moved back, we saw him quite frequently, especially because we had introduced him to another dear friend and neighbor with whom he became very close.

He was a wonderful person -- gifted and kind. The scar on my finger is not noticeable to others now after 36 years, but I can still see it, and I'm sure it will remind me of him for the rest of my life.

I and the rest of my family (Lia Linn, Li Linn, Bart Millar, Clark James) would like to extend our condolences to all of his family.

Charles introduced me to Shakespeare, the beauty of the French language and classical music. All the while he was self-effacing, gracious and kind. That was 50 years ago. Two years ago, when we renewed our relationship I thought I would meet a stranger, but his demeanor was unchanged. I realized how much Charles had affected me in those intervening years. My love of Shakespeare had transferred to my son, my daughter studied at the Sorbonne, and I could tolerate Mahler. In the last few years we shared interests in joint vocations in medicine, our love of history and our common Missouri roots. We sparred politely over politics. The time together was just way too short. Charles will be lovingly missed.
