Wow! im still in shock that hes gone, me and chuckie grew up together.16 years and now he's gone.
i cant beleive it. He was such a funny, outgoing, good kid. i mean even though he got himself into some bad things, he was still a great kid. i could never forget such a beautiful smile like his, and how he made me lauph all the time.I just dnt beleive it was his time to go. But he's in a better place now, and we will see you soon some day. i love you charles, best wishes to his family. you guys are all in my prayers. R.i.P.-Charles Edward Howard. 8/19/09.

Man Chuck I still cant believe this happened to you... It was sad to see your family & some of your closet friends breakdown today at your wake. Man i couldnt take it seein u in that casket cuz i feel like it wasnt your time to go & whoever the f**k did this to u needs to be punished for life i swear, they took someone away from us who didnt even deserve this and its heartbreaking. But man Chuck Im gon Miss You For life & even tho your in a better place i wish u was still here with us...R.I.P Charles Howard "Chuckie"

I am very sorry that Chucky left us so soon! I did not know him extremely well, but he was friends with my boyfriend and came to my house almost everyday last year! I keep him in my prayers!

Well, I guess it is time for mayor Grace to set up and beef up the security around here and stop this budget cut bull shit! People are dieing over this, houses are burning, and he really dont care. He lives his life, and that is all that he wants... Just to collect his check, and be the "Yes" man that they wanted... When Mayor Keys was in office, there wasnt this much problems... Get Grace out and get someone who cares in! Put more staff back on, and clean up Elyria! Its going to shit!!!

Chuckie has been one of my close friends since we were about 11. I can still remember the last time I talked to him, it was the night before he died. I remember us talking about hanging out that day when he got out of school, but I told him I could'nt make it out there because I had to work. I wish I would have just gone and maybe things would have been different. I loved Chuckie very much and he will always be in my heart. He will never be forgotten.

I will never forget what I was doing when I heard what happened to lil Chuckie. I will remeber the times when I would see him walking and give him a ride and he would ALWAYS make me LAUGH! I ride my the West side and when I don't see you it really sadens my spirit. Well will nor forget you Chuckie ever. Gone too Soon !

Wow how sad! The areas are just going to heck in a handbasket everywhere I guess. What's even sadder is the fact that so many cities are cutting back on law enforcement to protect the people from these thugs! They just keep sending the message out there that the city is just the Devils playground so let the criminals run wild! I feel bad for people that live in these city's where the finances have cut law enforcement. You all might want to move elsewhere city folk! Your tax dollars aren't busy protecting your streets! So sad.
