I was sorry to read about Charlie’s passing. He was one of our favorite patients at Suburban Hearing Aid. He had very difficult hearing loss with only one ear to understand words. I always told him to look at people when they talk to him and ask people to get his attention before they talk to him. Though his hearing was a challenge, it never dampened his sense of humor. Always came in with a smile. He will be sorely missed.
Sincerely, Gary Rachins
