I'm not sure what to call myself, kind of a step-son I guess. But your son will always be my brother, no step, no half. I'm the son from the next marriage if your wife. I didn't know you, but I grew up with pictures of you everywhere. Your memory everywhere. By all accounts a great man. Know that your son Charlie truly carried in your footsteps. He was and is loved by all. I miss him everyday. Rest in peace and take care of my mom. It's an honor to be part of such a family, yours as well as the NYSP Survivors family.
