Janet, I am so sorry for your loss. I will always remember Chuck as a feisty guy with strong opinions but his other side was a soft hearted and caring man. His love for your dachshunds showed his compassion and kindness and I loved that about him. ❤

In Life they say less than a handful of people effect your life so even though I have many friends there are only 3 people I consider as mentors and friends in my life. I dearly love the relationship I have with All 3.
My Dad first and then my Uncle Charles from a young boy he helped mold me into the man I became. I so much looked forward to the visits to Tennessee as a boy and then a teenager and then as a Man. I love him and will miss the calls for advice of course after I talked to my Dad his brother LOL but I needed a second opinion! To my Aunt Janet when you came into his life how much you changed him you completed him you meant the world to him and You became a special part of my life and that will continue to my uncle Charles from trips to the lookouts for a baseball game or teaching me to make my bed after I got up or the trips to lookout mountain though they may seem little the talks and discussions never went unheard sometimes just longer to understand so I say Goodbye, I will miss you and well done good and faithful servant. You will be missed.

I love you
Bub

Everyone who knew Chuck appreciated that he was a genuine person. His loyal heart was not hidden, but shone brightly for all to see and cherish. We will all miss the warm presence he added to every gathering.
