Every Sunday during football season was a cause for celebration at the Nardo house. Charles especially loved the NY Giants and the NY Yankees. Charles loved to entertain and enjoyed many good meals with family and friends. If you were in his presence, you had better be prepared for his collection of jokes and classic stories he loved to share.

So sorry Carole and family to hear of Kookies passing. When I told everyone here at Tropicana, everyone said he was such a nice guy! He could always make me smile with his sense of humor. I will always remember the good old days on Hollywood Drive when you guys were my neighbors! My deepest sympathy!
