RIP our forum friend Charles “Placebo”

It is with great sadness that I type this message.  Early this morning my friend Charles, known online here as Placebo, passed away. 

I will miss you Charles. You were one of a kind.

Heartbreaking loss for all of us that knew him. The softest, kindest human being under a crusty disguise. A great friend, really one of a kind.
