Some days I miss you so much.
I wonder how I am going to get through them.

Then, I think about something you did or said and it puts a smile on my face through the tears.

Yes, you changed my life and I will never stop missing you.
(angels at my door)
the memories are many.

Dear Chuck Iwill miss you so much. There are so many memories to cherish. I Thank you for walking me home from school in Chicago. You were always so far ahead of me with your long legs. I loved the dancing lessons in our parents basement. I remember the day you graduated from pharmacy school. Mom and Dad were so very proud. Our road trips to Vegas were always fun. You were so accomplished with your ability to build a computer. You loved books. Thanks for the memories Chuck. It is so hard to say goodbye

I am so sorry you will never read this, but there are some things I must say. I loved you like a brother, no matter the miles or borders between us, I felt your presence and could always imagine your response to a thought or goofy notion that might have crossed my mind. And I thought you the best of hospital pharmacists.

It was always in my mind to give you a call "soon". Alas I was not quick enough this time, but I forgive myself knowing you didn't miss it, you knew I would call "soon enough": Not so this time, Huh? The reaper in an ignorant cur with no redeeming qualities, aside from the promise of rest.

This I wish for you that you rest well my friend. Please map out the place for me, though, so that I will be able to resume asking questions of you, when I get there.

In friendship everlasting and not deterred by death, I remain your friend,
