Peaceful Passage Arrangement

I have known and loved Chuck for over 20 years of Saturday’s at Mendota. Four weeks ago I was privileged to share an hour and a half conversation with Chuck over lunch. I am a better person for having had you a small part of my life. Give Bill a big hug from me. I miss you and will honor your memory.
