Chas. What can I say? The man. The proud poppa. The head of
his house, the student of life. He loves to pop by my offices'.
Unannounced, only to pick my brain. No matter who he is on the
day he arrives, I have come to know that he is extremely intuitive.
Much more than those I have practiced with for all these years
I've been in medicine.
Speaking of those in the field of medicine, we follow a very
rigid process in becoming doctors. Clinical studies with long
hours and days serving as Internist. Chas is not a Medical Doctor
nor is he a Psychologist. But many of my colleagues would be
so lucky to have his knowledge when it comes to the minds, mannerism,
and projected characteristics of the male and female when either
of the two are brought together. I recommend his teachings to
anyone wishing to understand their motivations better.

All praises extended to The Almighty. My name is Joel Del Rucker
and I had the privilege long long ago to have Chas as one of
my biology students. Many of which went on to become esteemed
members of noted professions. Attorney's, Doctors, some even
managed to make it as Professional athletes. Chas converse with
all of them even thought he didn't gravitate towards any of
the campus cliques. What I know of him amazes me as he rarely
let anyone into his confidence. He wasn't anti-social, and to
suggest that he was wouldn't be fair. However he did have his
agenda. Today I am proud to see that his mission and thirst
for knowledge has taken him to unbelievable heights. And as
a servant, he has coming full circle.
I remember a many of nights he would come around for discussions.
The topic didn't matter but he would ask me about some of the
guys and girls that he grew up with. Many that had also been
students of my classes. Not once did he speak in a comparative
way, but I would get the sense that he was seeking his place
One day we were speaking of a mutual acquaintance who became
a multi-millionaire. This acquaintance had so much money his
reach influenced many activities that took place along the New
Jersey docks. The "cat" moved people with the power
that money can only create. He and Chas could be viewed as two
ends of a spectrum. He moved with money and Chas moved with
his mind. Two previous students, two distinct backgrounds, with
Something else I recall telling Chas. He was a student who was
definitely ahead of the others. To the point it was scary. I
didn't tell him because to know something like that about yourself
at such an impressionable age, is like giving a kid the keys
to a candy shop. He might of become like my other student. I
said it then and I say it now; "When he's ready for the
world the world had better look out."

Beverly Hills, CA.
People see me as one of those pretty women. I guess you can
say it's true. I once won the Miss California Beauty Title.
The down side is that my looks haven't made me anymore successful
with men. Most men won't approach let alone ask me out for a
date. In California everyone has a secret. Most want to be in
the entertainment profession, I was right there with all the
When I met Chas I was working with Quincy Jones. Working but
not getting where I knew I should have been long time ago. In
my talking with Chas I realized that I was not scared of life
or those who were scared of me, but afraid because of what life
had made believe I was entitled to expect.
Now I can say life is good. Oh yes, Chas you left me hanging.
You just sort of became invisible after a while. But it's okay
because you never really promised me anything but that I would
eventually be able to face me! For this I thank you.
Hey how ya doin'. Chas is my man. You know some people you meet
in life make you mad. Some make you wonder what could their
parents been thinkin' when they got together to create such
a child. Then there are others who you can't seem to forget,
no matter how long it's been since you last saw them. Chas is
like that. You can't forget him cause he is actually about something.
I was the best man at his wedding. I know his kids, and I know
him. We've made money together, we've "played" at
the penthouse together. Despite all of this the one thing he
never did was get away from who he was or what he was about.
We chased women like a squirrel chases a nut. When we did he
never failed to amaze them with his understanding of who they
really were. Forget about who they were tryin' to be. Another
thing I'll tell you he didn't do this just with the women. He
could call it on the men just as well.
Occasionally we still talk, and when we do it's as if we are
just picking up were we last spoke. He says he learns a lot
from me. I like to hear this, but it makes me laugh. The funny
thing is Chas has taught me even more than I could have ever
shown him. Some say he's arrogant, but those that do don't really
know him. I've worked with this man and as I'm here to testify,
"party'd with him". We've even walked our dogs together.
Come to think of it that's how we met, walking the dogs. One
thing Chas isn't, is arrogant. If anything he's confident about
who he is and what he knows.
He's worked on his writings and spent many days organizing CHALO,
and I'll be the first to say he knows what he's talking about
when it comes to this subject.
