“Truly, how fragile and fleeting life is. This one was called home before we were able to meet him. We will never, ever forget him, nor stop loving him. He embodied our hopes and dreams; some of which we still carry, some of which went with him. He will always be our third son, little one, lovely in every way. He is with his Father in heaven now, and we will be so, so glad to unite with him one day.
So, Charlie, you get to sit this one out; this beautiful, awful thing called life. We love you and miss you terribly.” - Mom & Dad
