  2. Chuck was my “best friend of friends” and I have literally known him all of my life. His untimely passing has left me devastated and I can only cherish the thousands of memories I have of our growing up together in Suffolk. We were inseparable and today would have been his 72nd birthday. Chuck was smart, kind, hard working, loved his family and had an absolute heart of gold. I love the entire March family and my heart and many prayers continue to be with you both now and the days ahead. I shall never get over the loss of Chuck and I will eternally keep our great memories in my soul as long as I have life. He was loved by many and will never ever be forgotten.
