Charlie, as your sister who was only 2 1/2 yrs. old when you were killed by a drunk driver, I miss the years that I could have had with you. Mom & Dad told me how you were so excited when they adopted me.

I am so glad you are being honored for your service to your community, even though your life and your service to your community was cut short.

One of these days, I hope to be able to attend the memorial in Washington to honor you properly.
