Chad, my heart goes out to you on the loss of Charles. My memories of him are of fun and positive times, including our 4th of July "event". Through our memories, he continues to live.

To the family, offering deepest sympathies for your loss. May your precious memories bring you comfort during this difficult time, as well as these words..."he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away."

I knew Chuck through Lois. I distinctly remember the first time I met him thinking how he brought out the best in me and everyone around him. I admired how he was able to speak with everyone in the room and how they tended to “come alive” in their own way as they, and I, spoke with him. He was such a good man, what a gift for those of you who were able to know him longer. God bless to family and friends and my prayers are with you all.

Chuck - you were an inspiration in my world. We shared many wonderful times together and there will always be those memories. I loved you and Chad and even though never meeting your "family" I felt as though I knew them all. I will forever miss your kind words as we continued to stay in touch over the many years. Your legacy will live on forever in my world. God Bless your family and friends as they continue forward without your kindness, although never forgotten.
