I was lucky to have met Charlie only a few years ago but right away I Liked him. He loved his wife Rita and was chasing around with his Cain hitting her in the behind. All I could do was laugh and think to myself he must have been such a hoot back in the day. My memories of him will be warm and special just for the amazing man he was. R.I.P. Charlie. You can rest now in gods protection. Say hi to my family up there. You are all special to me.
