I remember Maria and I having sleepovers at her dad's house and he was so nice to us. We were good kids but he was an even better father figure to me. I remember watching him and Maria dancing to music and me sitting on the couch like what's happening here. He was always in good spirit and loved his family and all the friends they brought over. And man that guy could cook. We will always miss you Charlie. And smile for us upstairs. While u watch us grow!. Love you, angela
