This is a sad week for me (and many others). One of my favorite teachers, Charlie Purpura, passed away on Monday to the shock and sadness of everyone who knew him. The funeral is tomorrow night so it’s going to be an emotional evening for many of us. If anyone hasn’t seen his movie Heaven Help Us starring Andrew McCarthy and Mary Stuart Masterson, you really should. Its humor and pathos speak to everything that made Charlie great. I’ll miss him very much.
