Words can’t describe how shocked and grief stricken I am to learn of your sudden departure. This planet couldn’t have lost a better person. I have to believe that Charlie, your parents, and all your dearest friends were there to welcome you. For us left behind, we are shattered and will miss all the love, joy, humor, and fun that you brought to our lives. I love you, and will deeply miss you until we meet again.

Christopher, what am I going to do without you? We talked every day, sometimes more than once. I will miss you, your kindness, wit and personality. I will really miss your friendship and most of all your contagious laugh.
I love you buddy. My life will
Have a void without you in it.
I will love you forever and hold you and your friendship deep in my heart.
Be happy in heaven and enjoy laughing at all the people walking (or tripping) through the gates of heaven.
With the fondest memories of a life cut too short.
Love,
Carolyn
