Edna and Denny thank you for taking such good care of Uncle Chuck. I will never forget when I would go down to the house, Uncle Chuck would tell me if I scratched his back he would give me a nickle. I have such great memories of hanging out at the house with Aunt Betty and Uncle Chuck. I will miss him.
