My sympathy to Jo and the family for the loss of a wonderful and talented
husband and father. I can see Chuck now, making sure all the angels are seeing well.
It was a pleasure and a learning experience to work with Chuck for all the years I was blessed to work with him.

My sincerest sympathies to Dr. Barrale's family at this sad time. Dr. Barrale was my first optometrist as a very nearsighted little girl. My dad brought me to him because they were high school friends. I remember Dr. Barrale with great fondness.

Jo, Joe and Vince - I have so many terrific memories of time spent with all of you and Chuck back in the 70's and 80's. Hill Days and the Bicentennial come right to mind. Please accept my sympathy and prayers at this time. We should all give thanks for a life well lived.
