    In spite of all the man’s troubles, his follies and foibles, Charlie and I were very close through all of the most difficult times in my life.

    He’s gone now, left this world. But that doesn’t devalue the time I spent with him. It doesn’t diminish the years we shared, it makes me all the more grateful for them.

    The laughter, shenanigans, and tears that Charlie and I experienced together are moments from my formative years that I’ll never forget and always appreciate. He was my brother-in-arms when it was us versus the world.

    I’m so sorry for the family’s loss. Please know that he was loved and won’t be forgotten.
