Joanne, So sorry to hear about Chuckie. He was always in our life from the time his mom would bring him to visit in Hopkinton. Running into him downtown Westerly and at the art show we would share lunch. Then when we worked at Moore’s every morning he came early just to talk. I remember him coming to a family reunion/party finding out he knew & worked with my mother in law. Then the last time before he went to Ohio. I was so glad I got to say goodbye and get a hug. He was a big part of our family’s life & I will continue to miss him. We were more then a cousin’s cousin. We were friends & family. Love to you Joanne & family. Lots of hugs sending to you Chuckie.
