Chuck and I had been friends since St. Viator's grade school. I'll miss his laugh. I would see him a couple of times a year at the last Saturday of the month breakfast.

Chuck was a great friend. He and Judy and my husband and I had many good times. We have been friends for 58 years. We went for a lot of rides and always stopped for ice cream. Played cards and had a
lot of laughs. You will be greatly missed. Love you and miss you.
