Cousin Charlie, when times were different , and the children, were not addressed in the conversation, you always made me feel like i belonged. Nobody talked to me and engaged but you did. You made a young kid feel something, like I belonged. When you met Terry, both of you treated me like brother and sister. I finally had someone to play games, to have company with, to take me to toys r us, (lo,) We lost a good one, a gentleman, a cousin , a friend........R.I.P Charlie you will be missed.
