Reader tributes

It always makes me happy when my wife informs me that my sister Andrea is coming to dinner, but it got even better during the past year when that news meant that Chuck would be at our table too. He always came in the door with a bright smile on his face and often made his first order of business to sit down to a game of chess with my young son David. He was clever and thoughtful and funny and so alive. I cry for my sister's loss, but I cry for my own as well.
