To my lovely wife, Brooke, and to Peggy, and Brittany,

This has been a very difficult loss for all of us. I cherish all the good times and fun Chuck gave each of us. I will miss his love and devotion that he gave to Domenic and Sabrina.

Chuck, Thank you for being the outstanding husband, Dad, Grandpa and Father-In-Law you were to all of us. We keep seeing 2 beautiful doves at our house every day which is a beautiful sign that we all know Grandpa Chuck is not only ok, but he’s watching over us.

Love, Ken Colaizzi

Dad, you were always a pillar of strength, not just for me, but for Mom and Brooke as well. I cannot begin to describe everything I learned from you and what an amazing dad you were - a girl couldn’t ask for a better dad. You will always be in my heart, and as I used to tell you every night when you called from the fire station, “My loves you.”

Mom, I cannot express how strong you are. Dad loved you more than anything.

As Brooke said below, to all of the people who have helped us through these hard months - thank you for all your love and support; it meant the world to my parents, sister, and me.

Peggy and family, there is nothing anyone can say or do to make this time for you any easier. I am so sorry for your loss. The one consolation all of us can have is that Charlie is no longer in pain. Our grief is for ourselves and the ones left behind. I know that all of you will be reunited someday with him and all the other loved ones that have gone before us. You are all in our thought and prays.

To Peggy, Brooke, Brittany, and your families--I am so sorry for your loss! I know how close you all are. I'll always cherish the good times we had together and all the laughing we did. I always knew that whatever we were doing, there would be a lot of laughter involved! Charlie will be greatly missed!
