A dear friend of 46 years. We will miss you Chuck...being twice stationed together, vacationing together in Europe and the US and chatting about all manner of things over the phones. We love you Karin.

Several weeks ago, while walking in the Timbers with neighbors, I ran into my friends Chuck and Karin. They were walking hand in hand and smiling at each other like two young lovers. This is my favorite memory of the 24 years I have known them.
