Dearest ATS friends...
I'm jumping on today to bring you a bit of local news from here in Texas about a loss our community recently suffered. Charlie Joyner, the Pope of
Fort Worth, left us a short while ago, God called him home. I know, this being an international site, almost no one here will know of whom I speak,
but this was such a terrific man, I thought to share a bit about his life and legacy quickly if for no other reason than to offer a momentary
I've known Charlie for about 5 years. Charlie was a homeless man with no legs, and I never once saw him without a smile. And it wasn't for lack of
intelligence or wit that formed his sunny disposition, Charlie was present and sharp. He was, quite simply put, as close to God as anyone I've ever
known, or am likely to know. He was literally famous in Fort Worth as well as beloved, and the elite of society would stop to speak with him daily;
receiving inspiration, encouragement and a lesson in humility and happiness from a man whom most would deem ill-positioned to be so completely in
receipt of such things. He was an angel amongst this community.
And so I offer this short tome to this, our ATS community, in remembrance of this great man. Charlie Joyner...The Pope of Fort Worth.
The Electric Priest
Edit: I tried to attach a photo of Charlie for all to see, but I guess my ATS skills leave something to be desired. Please visit my website and view
the page that I made for him there to get a quick look at this wonderful man (and if you're ATS savvy, perhaps post it in a reply). Also, I invite
you to listen to the first song on the music page which I dedicated to Charlie - First Prayer. Peace
