Dear Tumbling family,
I grew up with Chuck . My fondest memory of him is the passion he had for baseball and what must have been infinite graciousness on his part to tolerate my lack of athletic ability.
My prayer is that your family will feel the fullness of Gods love during this season of loss and grief
