    Dearest Nancy and all the family. We are so sorry to hear of Charlie’s passing. All the happy memories of Hudson Drug and UNICO come flooding back. He was such an inspiration to all the pharmacists in the Ferrito/ Lazzaro families. We hope he’s at peace and reunited with all of his beloved Corvettes!
