"I don't know if they're listening, cause we changed the location many, many, many times, but I hope Mom and Dad are out there. I want them to know a few things. A lot of you worried when they left that maybe things wouldn't turn out alright, that maybe we'd learn the wrong lessons from losing them, that we'd be so scared from losing them that we'd never attach ourselves to anything again, including each other. I can't speak for everyone, but I know what I learned. When something is important to you, you grab on with both hands and you don't even think about letting go. Letting go is not even an option. And I can't forget that now, because Kirsten, my wife (there's a concept) wouldn't be my wife for any other reason. So, I don't know what's next for us after this, but I know that I don't have to worry. Because my parents left me the secret to life. Mom and Dad, we never let go. And I don't believe we ever will." -Charlie
