Charlie it is hard to put into words how much you will be missed. You were not only my neighbor for 15 years but a true friend. You and Betty were more like parents to me, both always there to give me comfort or advice. You were a wise and kind hearted man who loved his family. I will miss you stopping bye on your mower just to say hello, talking about hunting or even fire calls we were on together. Even though you are gone I will never forget the huge impact you had on my life and the things you taught me. Love you Charlie

I will miss you my Uncle, your brother Ed my father looked up to you as I did with my older brother Robert. Distance can impact a family connection but can never abolish a family bond. I wish you could have seen the Juckett Genealogy I compiled has over 22 thousand ancestors, I’ll be sending it to the Library of Congress for future Juckett Generations just like I promised you. Love you Uncle Charlie
