Therefore, since we have been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ. Through him we have also obtained access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and we rejoice in hope of the glory of God. More than that, we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope, and hope does not put us to shame, because God's love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us.
Angels are rejoicing
It comes with both great sadness and much rejoicing that Charlie has been called home to meet his Heavenly Father.
After a courageous battle, Charlie has succumbed to complications from multiple surgeries and infection.
At 3:30 in the morning we were awakened by Kale coming to the house. He told Carri and Lucy that his dad wasn’t doing well and it was time to go say goodbye. Charlie was heavily sedated so there was no suffering in the end. Lucy, Carri, Kale, and nurses close to the family spent 4 hours praying and singing hymns from our "family hymnal". I know it was a precious time for everyone there.
It is surreal to think this man who has suffered immeasurably is now gone from this world and is now in a place where there is no sin, no pain, no sickness, nor anymore death. Praise God for the hope we have in Jesus Christ! Thank God for choosing Charlie to be one of his own.
It has been said for those of us who know the Redeemer Jesus Christ, this is NOT, nor will it be, our best life now; our best life is yet to come- Hallelujah, Amen!
Services are tentatively scheduled for Saturday, June 19th in Los Gatos.
Again, we do thank you for your prayers.
May God be glorified in all our circumstances.
In His Grace,

Charlie's Victory, An unforgettable story of love and courage.
One More Season, An incredible story about beating the odds, the power of love, and the promise of life.
|"I first met Charlie and Lucy in Berkeley in 1988. They both impressed me greatly by their love for each other and their determination not to let Lou Gering's disease win. It can be done."
|"Having been around the Wedemeyers for years, my wife and I love the joy and humor they find in all of life's situations. Charlie's humor transcends his tragedy, and I have to say, Charlie is the funniest person I've never heard. You cannot help but be uplifted by their faith in God, by Charlie's smile, and by the victory this has brought them."
