Charlie meets an old girlfriend in Lichtenstein

It was July 1964, Charlie and his parents had just dropped off their daughter, his sister, for Junior year abroad. They were passing through the Alps anyway....I was spending
part of summer in Heidi country. They found me in Maiensfeld and we went to dinner in Lichtenstein, in the shadow of that Disneylike castle.
16 yo can drink wine in Europe. His parents bought wine...it was enough to make any awkwardness go away.
After the meal Charlie and i walked to the stone pillars of the gateway, he hoisted me up and we talked face to face the way should have done on our disastrous first date, the night before we sailed away to live in Switzerland.
That night was uforgettable.
By the way, Mia Bray told me about Charlie being attacked and kissed in grammar school...he didnt fight back...

My Classmate and Friend

I remember so many things about you, how very smart you were, how playful.
My earliest memory: In second grade at CCDS, when the bell rang for recess, Millie D. and I would follow you from the classroom, hurry down the back steps and race into the playground where we’d chase you and try to pin you down so we could kiss you. (You didn’t run all that fast as I recall...). We were classmates for years until I went away to school. Though I never saw you after that, I’ve never forgotten you. What a courageous young man of service you became. My life was enriched by knowing you. Thank you, Charles.
