My condolences to the Pollack family. Chuck was my first cousin. He was the defacto patriarch of all of us first cousins. We were always so proud to say our cousin was a heart surgeon. I wonder how many lives he and his partners saved during their careers? I know my mom was one of them. Because of them my my mom was able to fulfill a lifelong dream of traveling to England and Scotland before she died. When us four Strege boys were younger, he would take all of us to Wrigley field in order to give my parents a break. I remember one time when he drove up from Indianapolis to play tackle football with us guys. When my mom and his mom, Aunt Annie, found out they read us the riot act, saying his hands were too valuable to be doing that with us. When he was still in medical school and I was a freshman in high school, he spent an entire week helping me with algebra. I never got less than an 'A' in math the rest of high school and four years at Purdue. RIP Chuck, yours was a life well lived! Your cousin, Phil.
