    Charlie was one of a kind and I was proud to call him my friend and "Brother". Charlie and Lindsay were 2 of my favorites when I pledged TKE as I was an older pledge at that time being a Junior in college. Charlie along with Marvin Ingram sort of took me under their Wings, so to speak, and if not for them I probably would have been blackballed lol. Charlie had a sense of fashion, a great personality, humorous beyond belief, and a bit crazy which I loved. RIP Charlie and my condolences to the family and close friends. Thoughts and Prayers going out to you!
