Charlie was such a large part of my growing up. Now as a parent, I know how much he did for us as a coach was a reflection of how much he truely loved his girls.
I will forever be greatful in how much time he sacrified to help me grow as an athlete and as a human being.
He was a fantastic example of how a coach and father should be.
