Thoughts from Charlie's mom & dad

The most important thing for people to know now is that we are not without hope. God took back he who had always been his. My
son had more love attention and purpose in 3 days than some do in a
lifetime. For that, this father will never cease to thank you all. In
... all truth and sincerity, because our son accomplished so much, not just
in his life but in others, we got to be proud of our son. Still am. So
if you see us and we have a smile on our face, know that it's because
God is still good. He was good to our son, and he's still good to us. Even
if they were the most difficult, they were still 3 of the best days of
our lives. Your prayers accomplished much, even if you may not see it
Thank you more than we can ever express, from Mom and Dad.
Charlie went to be with Jesus early this morning. He took a piece of all of our hearts with him. Continued prayers for the family as we grieve would be much appreciated. Thank you all for pouring your hearts out for this little life. In his 3 days on earth he has touched more lives than many of us dream possible. We praise the Lord always, for he is good, even in the midst of such pain.
I sign off with this quote, "If you want the peace that passes understanding then you have to give up your right to understand".
