  • Chuck, You were my “main man”. When we reconnected in 1978, you and I became inseparable. We went everywhere together. You were the disco king back then. I can still see you, and all of your moves on the dance floor, which you would clear on a regular basis. My many memories of those days are still fresh in my mind. They are among the best memories of my life. You and I had our own language which nobody but us could understand. I’ll always remember the times answering my phone only to hear some disco song playing in the background, and know it was you. It made me smile every time, and you kept on doing it throughout the years. I will really miss those calls! Mr. Harlan…I will never forget you, and the friendship that we shared over many many years. Your friend, MR
