(#1930) Charlie B (New Orleans, LA)
7/23/1998 in Cartersville, GA  EVENT: 21st Allatoona Roundup  TYPE: AA, Male, Story

Charlie came from a very happy childhood - Highland Park in Dallas, TX - with multiple servants and yard staff.

His father discovered the largest North American oil deposit - Hawthorne in Texas.

Charlie found the secret to life was pleasing the adults. He did not feel separate. He made friends easy.

Howard Hughes was a close friend of the family.

School was easy because he had a partially photographic memory.

He went to school collecting multiple degrees, got married and had two children along the way.

Then drinking began to take over his decision making.

"We all come here from different roads but we follow that road of happy destiny together."
