Charles was a teacher for some 34 years, ran a computer business, sold proprietary church software and hardware around the world. Charles has many blogs and sites on the web. Press4fun.com would be interesting if you ever need a joke or a funny video.

Charles majored in Psychology and Geography to obtain his BA degree and in Counseling & Education to receive his MSEd degree. He inherited his third degree from his Dad, C W Pedley, as this degree is passed on through the oldest offspring, the MUI degree. This degree empowers one to offer Useless or Useful Information to anyone and everyone. Hence MUI = Master of Useless (sometimes Useful) Information.
When in youth ministry Charles was asked to speak at many youth retreats and several Christian biker's events. He and Ellen have enjoyed leading young adult, College and Careers, and Adult groups.
Charles is married to his first real love and very patient wife Ellen, and has two daughters, one with three grandsons and one with two. Rebecca, the subject of the story has been remarried to another wonderful man, Pastor Scott Laird, of PCF in Arcade, NY. Her sister Ann is married to Jon Guinn and living in Attleboro, MA.
Charles & Ellen have been married 49+ years. They were married at a very early age, I believe before the age of 10 :-)
He has been active with his wife in teaching Crown Financial, and Dave Ramsey Financial Peace University, as well as Hebraic Roots courses through their church in Welland, Ontario. See http://www.faithwelland.com
His favorite pastime other than spending time with his wife and family is riding his motorcycle as far as he can in the limited time he has. Trips to Cornwall, Elkhart, IN, Curve Lake PowWow, in Ontario, through New York state, around Western New York's winding hilly, curving roads, and north to Meaford and Collingwood.
A passion that both Charles & Ellen share is traveling and photographing, especially beautiful natural scenes. See Trip-Ways.com for some samples of their photographs.
Most of all, Charles wants his book to be a blessing to those who may be grieving and not even know it, to those who are mourning a loss and see no hope for the future. Rebecca's story proves that there is hope and often amazing God-incidences when you trust Him.
