    What an amazing man! I had the privilege to meet Charles through my spouse Dave Murphy. While Charles was looking for an apartment he lived in our house for a few weeks. I do know where to begin with his amazing qualities as a person. I asked Charles if he could help us out we were running late and we needed to let the dogs out- I came home just as the dogs came in and I saw Charles sitting on the floor wiping our dogs paws. He was so gentle and kind to our dogs and they just sat next to him waiting for him to finish.
    I remember Charles with his bowl of cereal walking around the house just eating and enjoying it as though it was a steak dinner. Than he could not go to sleep until he had his ice cream- that spoon was bigger than Charles.
    Charles and I would wake up before the sun came up because we both started work early. He would run out start his car but never turn on the porch light- I would alway turn it on for him so he would not be out there in the dark.
    What a tragedy Charles passing. It hurts my heart as he had such a bright future. He had dreams he was so passionate about succeeding in his career. I am deeply sorry to the family about Charles.
