Charlie & I were in homeroom in our years at Mac. He was handsome & sweet. Our birthdays were a couple of days apart, and we always shared something, a made up card, roll from the cafeteria, stupid stuff. He was polite and had a great smile. Quiet, w/self confidence, a class act. A funny story...at a Mac reunion, he was asking about a best friend of his, Dicky Blair.
I told him I believed that he had died! As Charlie was in shock, we both raced to a near by phone booth, and I called my mom. In complete panic I asked her if Dicky had passed away, and my mom said, 'no I don't believe do let me call his mother.' We both waited by the phone and she called back with self assurance..he was alive and a nurse in Pennsylvania..w/his phone number. WE called Dicky from the phone booth, and the 3 of us had a great laugh. The last time I actually talked to Charlie we were still laughing about this and he & Dicky stayed in contact w/each other over the years. See you later Charlie!
