Dottie, Den and Suzy Q, I am so sorry. I love all of you guys and I am here just give me a call anytime❤️ XOXOXO. Jamie, You were my ride or die ….lifelong friend. I’m so devastated that you have moved on so soon. I have so many memories….too many to list and probably shouldn’t on here anyway…LOL Starting from riding our bicycles and hanging out when we were young all the way through to now, you were always one of my best friends. I wish I could’ve done more to help you, but it wasn’t meant to be. You will be missed by me forever…..until we meet again. Love you brother! Charlie
