Uncle charlie was nicknames "Cheap charlie" but he was never that but only as he lived to be Jack Benny. He was the most generous person I ever knew and I owe him a lot. He inspired my love of sports and especially the Yankees and NY Giants. I always loved to hear his infectious laughter and his antics.... like where did the Japanese rifle come from and how did Charlie get it; What happened to my quarter on the golf green replaced by a nickel with his fingerprints on the old buffalo; did Aunt Jackie really get a "Get Well Card" if she did not shop at the mall once a week? He was the never ending source of humor for the family and friends. But what he did every day for the family was the greatest - he was a man for the ages and I'll never forget him and always hope to live up to his integrity and character! I love you Charlie even though we rarely agreed on politics... it was the Family and Yankees that kept the glue of our love and care. I also feel blessed that my oldest daughter, Lorene shared your birthday and she always felt a special bond since she kicked you in the shins as a little girl.
Love you Charlie - Give our best to the family who you join in heaven!
