I remember standing in front of the Chuck Berry Fan Club on Easton Ave.(now
Dr.Martin Luther King Dr.) as a little girl hoping for a glimpse of him. I managed to get that glimpse and a tug on my braid from him one day as entered the building. What a beautiful smile he had! R.I.P.

You let me play with your gibsons, picked us up from school, taught me how to drive, let me backstage, onstage, front stage; your world became ours.

Chuck Berry's songs from decades ago have lived on for decades and will continue to live on for many more decades. Sweet Little Sixteen, Johnny B. Goode and Maybelline will be heard on dvds and on radio for eternity. He was a giant on stage in later years performing on televised music award shows. Thank you Mr. Berry, you will live forever in our hearts. We will miss you so terribly.

Love you chuck and family! Chuck was always approachable and kind. I got to know chuck as a regular joe.. He always had a smile and welcomed me as just another human. If you knew chuck at home and in his heart. You would never know he was rock'n roll. One of the most welcoming men I have ever met. Will miss you very very much. You will never be forgotten in my heart. Forever we will be having a talk as we did when we would fish together or hanging by that guitar shape pool or at southern air or walking with you to your car at walmart. I mention these relations. So folks know that chuck never considered himself above anyone. Not to one up anyone. He is a memory I will always have. Your family is in my heart!! God look over the berry family. God Bless! Tom

He was a true rock and blues pioneer. While he was before my time, it's a tribute to the popularity and quality of the music he produced because people like me are fully aware of his greatest hits.

My condolences to the family and friends of Chuck Berry. I enjoyed his music.

21:3And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God.
21:4And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.
