Judi I remember visiting your home in Florida for the first time. Charlie made us feel so welcome like we were very special guests. We weren't but he was. Charlie was a kind and extra special person.

The last time we went out to dinner with Judi and Charlie at our favorite Thai restaurant, we had the usual lovely evening of good food and even better conversation. As the evening went on, Charlie left the table to go to the restroom. On his return, we were reluctant to see our time together end, so we asked him to sit down once again for a few more minutes. He hesitated for a moment and then responded that it was just too hard to get down and have to get up again. In that moment, we realized, maybe for the first time, what a struggle his daily life must have been. Charlie never called attention to his disability and indeed made us forget about it when we were with him. Now we appreciate even more how much he wanted to be there and be strong for those he loved. And truly how very much his love for Judi sustained them both.

My dear cousin Charlie and I were the closest in age of the 10 Martino first cousins. Charlie was the brother I never had and I the sister he never had. The holiday and family gatherings, the visits to Aunt Ida & Uncle Sam's brownstone house in Brooklyn, their visits to our home in Connecticut, hanging out with the "gang" on Rutledge St., trips to the Candy Store, picking vegetables in my father's garden, learning to drive as teenagers and getting our licenses, and many more memories which created the bond we shared will remain with me all the days of my life. With Charlie living in Florida and I living in Arizona, in our adult years we kept in touch by frequent phone calls. I had the wonderful opportunity to see Charlie twice in the past three years at The Cousins Reunion that Charlie so proudly organized. It was a wonderful reunion and Charlie was so happy to get 7 out of the 10 of us together. Charlie was a man with a good heart. He had strong family values and loved his family, loved his nation, loved his beloved Judi, and treated people with respect and dignity. I so enjoyed our intense political conversations as Charlie was passionate about his love of America. I wish I could turn back the clock for one day to the time of our youth when Charlie would play stick ball on the block in Brooklyn. He would hit the ball and I would run the bases for him. When he went up and down stairs or ramps, I would take his hand in mine to guide him. In return, he was there for me in conversation when needed and took my hand in his. I witnessed first hand the trials and tribulations he went through growing up with his handicap. He overcame many obstacles and never complained even though every day of his life presented a challenge. He was a good role model for all of us as. I count my blessings that Charlie was part of my life. He will be missed sadly now and for ever. Rest in peace dear cousin. Love, Fran
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

Judi, you know how I feel about you and Charlie. Started with us doing your house at Kingsgate. I adore both of you and send along warmest condolences.

Judi - We were so sorry to hear about Charlie - in fact, we saw him on 12/19 at Gettell Hyundai in Punta Gorda - we were both waiting for our cars to be serviced - our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family - such a delightful person.

When Charlie & Mike were in the Used car business, I saw him often. He was polite, always smiling, & loved to chit-chat about Judi. He just loved her so, that the excitement of planning a life together with her, in FL, was all he could talk about. He will be missed. R.I.P "CHARLES IN CHARGE".
