Uncle Charles, you gave us a wonderful childhood. From playing games like pop o matic headache, to the amazing nerf magician, to marching us to the bus stop, singing your new army songs. But my biggest memory happened when I was 4 years old. The astronauts were on tv, walking on the moon for the first time. I said Uncle Chuckie this show is boring, cant we watch bugs bunny? And you shouted "WHAT?! WHAT?! Do you realize whats happening? Come outside right now!" You pointed up at the moon and said "those astronauts on tv are up there right now, walking on that moon!" I didnt see them. I didnt get it. I just had to take your word on faith. And now, Uncle Charles, I pray you are in a new place, far beyond the moon. And we will meet again.
