Dearest Marie and all family, my sincere sympathy to all over the loss of our Dear Chuck. I tried to make the memorial with my dad in tow, but Uncle Pat doesn't have much steam now days and he/we couldn't make it. We streamed the service with our tears streaming down our checks. God Bless and Hugs!

"Uncle" Chuck was one of my favorite people. Though I rarely saw him, he was just the kind of guy that made everyone instantly smile. He always seemed genuinely glad to see people and his joy was infectious. I have a great memory of him taking me and his niece Stephanie to paint a garage for a wealthy guy he was working for, in Brighton. He told us if we got it done, he'd let us swim. It was a fun memorable day and the first and only time I tried caviar. The world was a better place because he was in it and now everything feels just a little bit darker. "Aunt" Marie is definitely in my thoughts and prayers. Couldn't ask for a nicer couple. He will be sorely missed.
