    Charles is my father in law since 1972.
    I consider him the only real father that I ever had.
    He has been always there for me and treated me as his own son.
    I will miss Dad terribly.
    What a wonderful man, father and husband this family has loss.

    Charles J. Mortellaro is the only Grandpa I have ever known. If I had to use one word to describe MY Grandpa I would use the word “Valor”.

    Grandpa, thank you for everything. You battled long and hard these past several years and showed us beyond measurable strength, passion and courage over the last few months. You will always be a true inspiration to Me. Grandpa you showed Me the true definition of a Man of “Valor”.

    If the people we love are stolen from us, the way to have them live on is to never stop loving them.

    Come back. Even as a shadow, even as a dream.

    I love you Grandpa. You will forever be loved and missed. Love your granddaughter, Wendy.
