With the 2012 Summer Olympic games set to continue in London, people from all the world, and especially here in the northwest, are reacting to the death of Charlie Huff.
The 21 year old Olympian from the Longview area in Washington state, was a T-ball player.

A few days ago, Huff was playing T-ball and collapsed in the dugout, as the team was battling for a gold medal in a regional tournament.     

Huff sadly died a short time later at the hospital of what was found to be a heart attack.

On Monday, a Pastor held a service for Huff. Nearly 200 friends and family members listened and laughed as people who loved Charlie shared good memories.
