We would like to express our sincere appreciation to the Nurses and Aides from Holisticare Hospice Services for assisting us with in-home hospice during his final days.

A heartfelt thank you to the Reverend Eugene Ritz (Diocesan Chancellor of Allentown), who considered Charlie an “adopted uncle,” for administering the Sacrament of the Sick to him at home, and the profound sermon during the funeral celebration at MMR. Special mention to Clinton Bonelli (Funeral Director) and the staff of Fluehr Funeral Home (New Britain/ Richboro) for a flawless execution of Charles’ final requests, from his death until his Inurnment.
