In my college Years day trip home to see Peggy and Chuck was always an amazing break from school. Chuck would be singing to his dogs and offering me an Old Milwaukee beer while Peggy made some of the best seven layer nacho dip for snacking with chips. The pair of them will never be forgotten. They were a neat couple that always made you feel part of the family! Paige Kagin

Greetings to Tom, Tim, Mark, Adam an Tracey.

With fondness I remember your grandparents, Arnold and Rosella, and your Dad and Uncle Don when I served at Zion. Keith Kankowfski (not sure of spelling) lived across the street from your grandparents and now works for our son, Joel and his wife, Keersten (Meinzen - teacher John Meinzen's daughter) at Apollo Design Technologies off of Hillegas at Ludwig.

The Lord will continue to bless you dear people.

Being a neighbor of Chuck and Peggy’s for many years was a very great blessing to me. To lose both of them in such a short time span is hard to except. We tried to help each other out as much as we could cause that’s what neighbors do. Went out to eat with them both a few times and enjoyed their company. Chuck loved to care for my dogs when he was able. He loved to tell jokes and always made you feel welcome when visiting, even when he wasn’t feeling well. I will miss both him and Peggy. They loved to just sit out front and talk with the neighbors as they walked by or in my case I would pull up a chair and yack with them. Just very nice neighbors to have for many years. My regards to all the family. May God’s peace be with you all at this time.
