He was my best friend and practically my big brother.
It was April 5, 2008 when my sister and I got the phone call at 12 in the morning from my friend that Charlie had just been killed in a wreck.
I never thought that I was going to loose him.
Me being only 15 and him 18 I took it pretty hard because I looked up to him, he was my hero, my idol, and much more!
Earlier that day I remember him telling me that he was put on the waiting list for Texas aTm University. I was still so proud of him especially with everything he had accomplished in those 8 years I had known him!
I had never cried so much in my life... to think that one minute he was here then the next he wasn't.
I just couldn't believe that I had seen him a few days before the wreck and talked to him on the phone a few hours before.
He was driving down the road...I guess headed home from being with friends. That night he had been drinking a little but i never thought that would be him that I would say goodbye to.
When he was driving he swerved and over corrected. Charlie was ejected and his truck rolled and ended upside down beside the road.
There was no blood just a small scratch above his left eye.
I had talked to some people when I went to see the crash site and they told me that when he was ejected he had head trauma.
April 8, 2008, I remember that day so good because that is the last time I saw Charlie. He didn't look him self at all.
I couldn't get over that it was really him laying there.
He is always in my heart!
I love you with all my heart.
I think of him everyday and I love him.
