As a loving tribute to “Chucky”, let us tell of the life of our friend who gave us love and laughter. To the family, precious to his heart in words and deeds, he showed everyone just how precious you were to him and others. There was never a question about his love; it was unselfish, generous to all he had a chance to meet. Many times, we find it easy to love those who are kin, blood relatives, but our “Chucky” loved beyond the circle of his own relatives. His love included many friends who benefited from his compassion. One of the qualities he possessed, which made him a true friend, was his spirit of kindness. He was not negative; and, he did not condemn others. As a young man, he did not put me down when I made mistakes; however, he gave words of encouragement to do better next time. I thank God for allowing Chucky to be a part of my life, which I will not forget.
