Good Morning Everybody!

Howard paid tribute to a fallen friend on Monday after losing his cat, Charlie, who he adopted five years ago.

Charlie spent two years in a cage at a shelter before Howard and Beth discovered the 22-pound cat and adopted him. Charlie, in fact, was originally called "Kitty" by the staff because they had thought he was a female.

While initially hesitant in his new environment, Charlie soon felt at home in the Stern household and became a mainstay in the kitchen. "He was just the greatest cat," Howard said. He even found a friend in fellow Stern household resident Sophia, a blind cat whom he constantly groomed.

Through sickness and in health....❤️ #truelovestory

Unfortunately, after living a happy life the past few years, Charlie was diagnosed with cancer and passed away over the weekend.

Rest in peace, "Chunk."
