Charlie... I’m so sorry I didn’t get in touch sooner . Too many deaths in my family, too much grief . But for some reason, when I woke up today 'I knew’. I love you my friend, and I always will. You were the best room mate a girl could ask for. Enjoy your life with Dolly and all those who were waiting to greet you. I'll tell Rick and Ken to look for you ! Until we meet again my friend. With so much love, Mickey .
