Charlie you were the love of my life and my best friend. Even after 3 years of being unseperatable from one another,  we went our seperate ways and were still best friends. No one could or will ever hold the special plave in my heart that you have always had. This hurts my heart and it's killing me inside.. I'm so glad I always told you how much you meant to me and i could never forget you. I love you with all my heart and nothing could ever change that...r.i.p. sweet love, until I see you again

I'm so sorry for your family's loss. I knew Charlie since he was probably 14 yrs old. This was a terrible thing that has happened. I pray that your family finds closure and that justice will be found.
