During the past few years, I was able to see Cousin Chuck during my trips to Chicago. I’m thankful for that. I will miss him and his big, loving nature. I will always love Cousin Chuck and hold a very special place in my heart for him. 💔

When my soon to be husband and I joined Temple Beth-El in 2002, Chuck and Joyce were one of the first couples we met. We would stay after services for coffee and dessert and visit until we got a look from the people who had to clean up.
Joyce died in 2017. Chuck started to look very thin. I began a series of visits to Chuck to be sure he was okay. I brought him cookies and food that he could freeze and we would have tea together. I learned his whole life story.
During the pandemic, I would slip the food I brought him through the rails of his balcony. Our chats were limited to the phone.
I now have wonderful memories of “Tea with Chuck”.
