Prayers of comfort for Sandy and family. I hope Charles has a heaven full of Golden Retrievers. Please give some extra love to Levon for me. I'm sure he will miss Chrarles.

He was an amazing man. I can remember him taking care of me when he worked with one of the local Drs offices and then at the hospital. He will be greatly missed.

Sandy I never got to meet you, but i am sure you heard of me from Charles. I loved to aggravate him. He was so easy to pick at. But unfortunately I never was allowed the time to sit and get to know the real Charles Cusumamo. I know he had a great since of humor and loved to pick at people. I know he was highly intelligent. His love for animals was something else. I am praying for all of you and I am so glad to see that there is no more suffering. He is in a much better place. I am a much better person for knowing him. God Bless you all.

'Chuck'!!! You will be soooo missed. I'm told, dying is not the worse thing that can happen to you. Dying and not being remembered is!!! With your personality and sense of humor, you are someone that can never be forgotten.. I will never forget your smile and laugh. An old friend. Maria

I am heartbroken. We were neighborhood friends since the winter of 1959-60 in West Orange, and shared many experiences and memories. I'm glad that my phone call "got through" a few days ago. The glory days of Wheeler Street will never be forgotten.

All my prayers and condolences. A passionate advocate who made my heart smile. An original fighter for Lad, the collie puppy wounded by his owner in Daviess County, Kentucky. Lad opens his wings to welcome you with honor and love Charles.
