Philip Raymond Barasch and Charis Elizabeth Hughes walked into each others lives in February of 1989. They fell in love and stayed in love for 33 years. Blessed by the sacrament of Holy Matrimony, their lives were defined by reciprocal, unconditional love. "Bearing Witness" is the last agreement they made. Charis was diagnosed with a brain tumor in April 2022. It was sixty-two days from her diagnosis to her departure. A devout Christian, Charis literally manifested her theology in her final weeks. She did so the understanding that Philip would share what he witnessed. "Bearing Witness" is the last great act of unconditional love between this husband and wife.
