    Cristen Eddins - “your girl” ❤️ says:
    Charlie, you will be missed by SO MANY- especially me. I’ll always be “your girl” and “your sweetheart” forever and ever.. I’ll miss our talks and your willingness to give me your shoulder when I needed it the most. You taught me so many things in life that I’ll hold onto forever. You taught me how to crack a perfectly boiled egg where you pull the entire shell off in one piece (skills!).. you taught me the secrets of your perfect pecan pie techniques.. you taught me how to meticulous place each flake of coconut for a precise coconut cake.. you taught me how to crack pecans with your ancient gadget that was again, your secret weapon... Most importantly, you always made me aware of how proud you were of me through many milestones through life... and you thought me how to LOVE and be loved! You gave me your greatest gift, your chip off the old block- son..you were maybe not so willingly to pass your sweetheart down to Chuck, but you did it without hesitation and you were proud of that too... I’ll miss your stories— your longggg, meticulously detailed, stories about your own amazing adventures through life. I’ll always be able to hear your laugh as you chuckled to get through the funny ones.. these are my favorite!!! And ultimately, I’ll just miss YOU. Forever. I know we’ll meet again and what a beautiful day that will be! Until then, you and chuck keep a close eye out on us- as I know you already are! I love you to Heaven and back, sweet Charlie! Thank you for loving me.
