Charlie grew from a darling, wild little boy into a man with an enormously loving heart and great compassion, who was a joy to be around and who I respected very much. I loved every minute of being his mother and his friend. I was very fortunate. I love him dearly, miss him terribly, pray that he is at peace, and feel blessed to have had him in my life. Thank you to all of his friends for sharing your memories and feelings about him. It has been a great comfort to us all.
