    May the Almighty now care for and watch over Uncle Chuck. May he have the peace in his soul for now and forever. May he find joy with the family that left before him, Rita, Joe and Fran, along with the rest of the Battaglias.

    Dear Ann and Family,
    I am saddened to learn of Chuck’s passing. Chuck and I played in the New Horizons Big Band together and had NY Yankee blood running through our veins. We had some great solutions, to help them, but we weren’t sure they paid any attention to us. May your wonderful memories help you through this difficult time. My thoughts and prayers are with you. John

    So sorry to hear the news about Chuck. Worked with him for many years and felt he was a friend. He always had a great level of enthusiasm for life. I’m out of town and will unfortunately miss the funeral, Fraida and I wish to send our Condolences to the entire family.

    Dear Lisa, Frank and Lile’,
    We were sorry to read of your loss in this morning’s Schenectady Gazette. The death of a loved one is difficult at best.
    Our hearts go out to your mother, at the loss of her husband, to you and your brothers at the loss of your father; and especially to Lile’, at the loss of her grand father.
    May you be comforted by God’s blessings on all of Chuck’s family, loved ones and friends.
    We look forward to sharing happier times with you on our Sacandaga beach this coming summer.
    With sympathy,
    Mark and Judy
