"Mr. I" was the soul of kindness. (No one who spent more than 5 minutes with him would be fooled by that slightly gruff exterior.) I had countless conversations with Mr. I through the years of Pollo's Mengoni team membership, and despite the many frustrations of being a team manager, his patience prevailed and he always made his riders feel important and heard. His care for his riders was such that, even after we moved away from NYC, he kept in touch. He always responded to our Christmas cards. We are both thinking of you, Charlie, and know that our grief is nothing to your own.
