Whenever someone you love becomes a memory the memory becomes a treasurer. I will always remember Charlie for his beautiful smile. He was such a kind, loving man. He wrote his stories and his poems from his heart many a time whenever he would read me one it sure would bring a tear to my eye. RIP Charlie till we meet again. Fly high my friend
