From The Family:
Charlie although ill for sometime had remained strong until the very end. He insisted even on the last night of his life that he was all right. Our thoughts and prayers at this time are that he is at last, indeed, "all right".

God knew that to linger would only be to suffer, so he graciously welcomed him home.
