    Dear Charlie,

    I”m a big fan. I love all your music, but recently I have been listening to your Gospel Music and no doubt you are saved. You and your brother have made an incredible indelible impact on American music, not just country music. I saw you on the Old Wilburn Brothers show and Country family reunion. The Louvin Brothers are as important to country and Bluegrass music as Jimmie Rodgers, The Stanley’s, Ernest Tubb, Bill Monroe or Hank. I’d like to have seen you on tour with Cheap Trick and other rock bands.
    I’m praying you are healed and can continue with things you enjoy. PEACE.

    I heard the news today and I wonder if he ever realized how much he got to watched me grow from a hard headed kid to a conscienious well rounded man…
    Charlie was truly gifted not only in music, but also had the ability to touch your heart to the core of your soul, by just being the down to earth , sincere and genuine person in mind, body, and spirit,I knew.
    The music venue has lost a legend today and I grieve because I also lost a friend.
    Thank you God for allowing me to know him as an artist,as a man and also as a friend.

    I was sadden yesterday to hear of Charlie’s passing. As a musician in Jeff Barry’s Band (a treasured friend of Charlie’s), I recall playing Charlie’s music during the 60’s and 70’s at gigs we performed at. When former band members performed at a benefit for Jeff (following a serious auto crash), Charlie travelled all the way up to Canada and performed as well, demonstrating what a great humanitarian he was. During these performances, Charlie sang harmony with me on songs I sang that day. What a treat! Charlie may be gone today but will never be forgotten by friends and fans alike. God Bless.
