Even though I was very young when I knew Charles, I will never forget him. He was always happy to see everyone. By far one of the most intelligent young men I have ever met. He is a shining example of how to treat others. I pray you will find a way through in this time Teri. Be strong.

Dear Teri,

I am so sorry for the loss of your young son. I found your page when I was viewing a friend's obituary, and saw a picture of your son's grave site at a national cemetery pass by in a slide show. I am very familiar with such pictures because my baby brother was killed at 26 in the military. I wanted to write you a note to let you know how sorry I am for your loss, and also to let you know about TAPS,, a wonderful organization that provides free grief support for anyone who has lost a loved one who served our country, regardless of how or when he or she died. The organization really helped me deal with my loss. I will continue to think of you and your son, and want you to know that I appreciate your son's service to our country.

Getting to spend time with your paternal grandma this last week was--is always--special. We both miss you with all our hearts. There we sat together in the middle of the Denny's restaurant, crying our eyes out. It has been more emotional for me as of late, because of sorting boxes of old paperwork and finding memories of you. I love you baby.

You were always a good person charles...a better person than alot of us. You were a good listener, someone others could talk to an receive advise from. We had some good times, an some times where i made you as confused as all get out. It was a horrible shock to me when i learned this had know one of us was gone from this world...i can only hope that you have found the peace you so richly deserve for all you have done for all of us here. It may not be soon, or even years from now, but we'll meet again old friend, an when we do, i hope i can hold my head up high when we do an that i can share with you some great stories. Rest in peace, an know you left this world just alittle bit better for being in it.

Charles, Unfortunately the alumni association at Milton Hershey School only recently found out about your very untimely passing. You and I shared a few classes way back in the 1999-2000 school year. You used to get on me about not working to my ability. You were right. This world lost a great person when you died, and I will push to make sure that all your friends at MHS know about this guest book so that they can too can offer condolences. You won't be forgotten.

Missing You

No words I write can ever say,
How much I miss you every day.
As time goes by the loneliness grows,
How I miss you, nobody knows!
I think of you in silence, I often speak your name.
But all I have are memories and photos in a frame.
No one knows my sorrow. No one sees me weep.
But the love I have for you,
Is in my heart to keep.
I've never stopped loving you—I know I never will.
Deep inside my heart, you are with me still.
Heartaches in this world are many,
But mine is worse than any.
My heart still aches as I whisper low,
"I love you and I miss you so."
The things we feel so deeply, are often the hardest things to say.
But I just can't keep quiet any more, so I'll tell you anyway.
There is a place in my heart, that no one else can fill.
I love you so, my precious child
And I always will.

Hi hon. I miss ya. Been enjoying the Stevie Nicks music... not the one you recommended so much, because it hits me hard, though I have practically worn that album out by now; but I have branched out to some of her other music now. Never really listened to her stuff before you suggested it. Love you baby.

15th Worldwide Candle Lighting December 11, 2011. All around the world, parents who have lost a child at any age are encouraged to light a candle at 7 pm in their time zone with the thought that the light of these candles moves around the globe—this can be done in the privacy of your home or in the company of others. Here is a link to the TCF website about the event:

The Compassionate Friends Worldwide Candle Lighting unites family and friends around the globe in lighting candles for one hour to honor and remember children who have died at any age from any cause. As candles are lit at 7 p.m. local time, creating a virtual wave of light, hundreds of thousands of persons commemorate and honor the memory of children in a way that transcends all ethnic, cultural, religious, and political boundaries.

Now believed to be the largest mass candle lighting on the globe, the Worldwide Candle Lighting, a gift to the bereavement community from The Compassionate Friends, creates a virtual 24-hour wave of light as it moves from time zone to time zone. Hundreds of formal candle lighting events are held and thousands of informal candle lightings are conducted in homes as families gather in quiet remembrance of children who have died, but will never be forgotten.
