Charlie boy,
you have passed on now,
i dont want to be nasty but it was probably for the best,
your in gods hands now
just lay there and rest.

You kept to yourself,
and i never got angry when you didnt reply to my 'hellos',
it had probably been a long time since you heard that

People probably wont even notice your gone,
but il'l remember ya

Farewell Charlie boy!

------- Author's Notes -------

Goodbye Charlie

Nice once again Hushy! Your words are in motion, they come alive, by the flow of your pen.... It's sad about Charlie, but I hope it was only old age, and not any complications that caused his death..... It was good though, that he lived to be in the 90s... A lot of people don't make it that far, even less, the 100s! This is a good heartfelt death tribute to dedicate to Charlie!

Name:                                           Remember Me
