Farrah & Entire Christie Family,

So sorry to hear of Charlie's passing. In our season together I considered him a great friend and still do, even though I rarely got a chance to visit in the later years. He was one of those guys that seemed rough around the edges until you got to know him, and then you would find out just how much of a teddy bear he really was.

He was the first one to take my oldest daughter fishing and the only one to get her to eat fish and admit she liked it. He kept a watchful eye on my girls when I couldn't and always gave an ear when he could. We had many visits over the years while living next door to one another. He even let me beat him in a pool game here and there over the years.

Charlie, you will be missed and I will hold our time together always close. Gonna miss ya, pal!

Charlie was a pool table wizard, he could see angles that no one else could see. know just how much English to put on a cue ball to get it to do exactly what he wanted it to do. I would love to have his talent. God bless you Charlie, rest in peace
