I have often thought of Charlie through the years. His great sense of humor is what I always think about. I have a daughter with cerebral palsy, so now I know how brave Charlie was. But I never saw any sign of self-pity in him, and his clowning provided a lot of fun in school. If anyone has more to add about what he did after Lafayette, please add to the comments.

Charlie, could aways get people to laugh. He always showed great strenght and courage.  He was always an inspiration to a lot of us. " GOD BLESS HIS SOLE"

Believe it or not Charlie and I went to school together first through fourth grade and I remember they had to strap him in the school desk and also strap his arm down too.  My Mom and his were friends when we went to Southside Elementary in  Paris, KY where I was born............years later I about fell over when I ran into him at Lafayette........then years after that I ran into him pumping gas at Thorntons and I believe he had a job with the state....we chatted and he drove off.  I thought to myself how wonderful and brave he was to have come so far with his disability but he was sharp and very bright.  I had no idea he passed away until now.

Funny, funny guy and very, very SMART...because of his disabilities I think (when we first met him) we underestimated him.  Miss your humor Charlie.
