There are so many words to write about Charlie. And then there are none -- like so many others, I feel so devastated by the sudden loss of Charlie. He has inspired me for a lifetime. He had accomplished so much and yet was so humble and unpretentious. He instantly put a smile on my face when he'd walk into a room as whatever was happening just became infinitely more fun and interesting because Charlie had arrived. He encompassed what it is to be human, to truly live -- through his childlike enthusiasm for life, learning, adventure, and most of all his genuine interest, compassion, and love for other people.
