    thank God for having had the opportunity to live a few years in Boston and to have shared more time with my family on my mother’s side. Uncle charlie, Carole and CB always made me feel at home, today I remember one of so many anecdotes with my uncle charlie when we went for a ride in his plane and in the air he released the scam and he told me now it’s your turn and to drive. it was a wonderful experience. In the midst of my sadness for not being able to be with you in these moments of pandemic I say goodbye, thank you for sharing with me so many moments. Rest In Peace. You’ll always be in my heart. I love you forever❤️ ❤️

Snow cruising in your snow mobile, Cruising the Golf of Mexico with the family.
    Always remember your wit your intelligence. You got me upset also, dont believe you did not, but love you always.
    You maybe gone but never forgotten.
    Always in my memories.

    God bless and keep you, Charlie.
    Your friendship was a special gift to Peter and me especially over the past few years. I’m sure you and Peter are already bantering over various issues while visiting each other in your heavenly homes. Memories of the “debates” between you and Peter will always bring a smile to my face.
    You now join him in my daily prayers.
    Rest in peace, Charlie.
