We were Unitarian Universalist friends of Charles. We moved to Iowa City in 1993 and met him soon after. Our son Niall was 10 and had had diabetes since he was 23 months old. It was a joy to our family to meet and know Dr. Reed who had developed the Constant Carbohydrate Diet that we had lived by since Niall's diagnosis. Niall and Charles got to know each other on a UU mushroom hunting event. We will miss him.

I learned today of the passing of my friend and fellow photographer, Dr. Charles Read. He created a portfolio of photographs over a period of many years, and we worked together to turn the images into prints and large canvases that hang in galleries, offices, and public buildings. I enjoyed our times together and our shared experiences. I will miss him.
