My buddy worked for Charlie and I went in and helped with work a few times. Charlie and Linda were always respectful, always had a smile and a pleasure to be around. My condolences to the Turano family and i hope you rest in peace, Charlie. In my book you were always a good dude.

Although I did not know this nice man personally, I do know his lovely wife and two daughters who were in my third grade class at St. Pius X School. Mrs. Turano, and Ashley and Carmela, be assured of my deepest sympathy and prayers for you and your family. So sorry for your great loss. He is with God, for sure, and watching over you from heaven where there is no pain. Just a thought and love from me, Teresa Senatore and family.
