In addition to being such a great scientist Charlie was also a person with an enormous heart. When I was a PhD student, traveling to the US with little money and little English, he welcomed not only to his lab but also to his house, and took the time to engage me in long conversations about his research and many other things. 

He touched the lives of many people beyond those he mentored directly. Rest in peace Charlie.
