Chuck was a good friend, as well as my brother-in-law. I have many fond memories of times with Chuck, but two especially stand out.
The first was my sister, Nora, bringing Chuck South from New Jersey, for the first time, to visit our family in the country, about 8 miles from the small town of Hosford, in North Florida. Chuck was a big city boy, Italian, and Catholic. We were country people, more like woods people; 8 miles to the nearest store, and Protestant. We were having a big dinner, as usual, with all 9 of us around a big round table. My father asked Chuck to say the blessing before we ate. I’m not sure that I had ever seen a Catholic before, but I assumed Chuck was very religious and there would be a long prayer; therefore a long wait time before I could eat. Chuck bowed his head, devoutly crossed himself, but then to my surprise and amazement, looked up and said, “much obliged”. Wow, was as I relieved, and I could eat. Nothing could have broken the ice better, or endeared him more, to me than that rather undevout statement.
The second was a memorable 1200 mile drive to Miami Beach, Florida, just the two of us, singing “Cara Mia” (my beloved) most of the trip. We stopped at some tourist attractions, arrived at Miami Beach, stuck our toes in the water, and drove back home to Hosford. Great trip!
