So very sorry to hear of Charlie's passing. I remember how my dad would go to Charlies', usually in September when Nancy was visiting somewhere and they would work on some home improvement project that Charlie had going on. And how dad enjoyed going to Uncle Tom's cabin to see Charlie, Tom and often Bob for their boys' weekends. And I remember a trip to Greektown with some of the Fotas and most of the Elerts, with Aunt Helen when Kate was just 2 years old.
