    Hi all-

    I am sad today as this is the first anniversary of my friend Charlies' death after battaling cancer for almost three years. He was the best friend I have ever had and gave me hope when I thought I had none. He made me see life in a totally different way than anyone else ever has. When I have my dark moments I think about Charlie. Even after he learned his cancer was terminal he did not give up and just roll over. He kept fighting, kept living life up until his last breath. My only regret is that I was in a psychiatric ward for the last month of his life and was not able to see him in person. I talk to him everyday! He loved animals, ice hockey, Pokemon, and PRIME rib! I love and miss him everyday! I promised him the last time we talked that I would work my way through the hard times and not take myself out as he will be waiting at the Pearly gates when I am called home, not when I do it myself.

    Love you always!
