When Widow Carries On Husband’s Kind Tradition of Filling a Cooler, People Pay It Forward
By McKinley Corbley – Jul 5, 2018

*** begin quote ***

It’s been seven months since Charlie Poveromo suddenly died of a heart attack at the age of 57 – but since his widow is making sure to carry on his compassionate tradition, people across the nation are paying it forward too.

Charlie was a beloved bartender, a devoted husband, and a bustling homeowner. Not only that, he was extraordinarily kind.

When a heat wave struck Milford, New Jersey eight years ago, Charlie spotted several garagemen looking pale, sweaty, and exhausted as they worked through the grueling temperatures outside of his home. He immediately grabbed several plastic cups of cooled water, ran outside, ushered the men into the shade, and offered them their fill of hydration.

I have always offered bottles of water on hot days to the folks working outside.  Even if they are not working “for me”.  

I was singularly impressed how others picked up the meme and did it for Charlie far and wide.

Good works multiplied!
