    So sorry Marie. The thing I will always remember about Butch was his sense of humor. It was such fun to be around him. The times on Park Ave. I will remember forever.

    I have known Charlie for many, many years. Actually he lived down the street from me in Revere. We both worked for American Airlines. I never had the pleasure of working directly with Charlie, however, everyone who did thought the world of him. Charlie was a wonderful son, husband, father, and friend; he will be missed greatly. Charlie had a fantastic gift of making people LAUGH. HIs sense of humor was incredible – it was ***off the wall*** to say the least – his comments always caught us off guard – that is what made him so special!!! Charlie is now in heaven making God, the saints, and angels LAUGH their wings off.
