In the few short years that I have had the pleasure of meeting this wonderful family, I have seen the great
love and closeness that they share. At Davids and Carrie Lynns wedding, Chuck told me that his family was everything to him. I know the many memories that they have shared through their lives will help to bring comfort to all of them, as the closeness that they share as a family continues.
