Chuck and I never met, either. Yet, we became fast friends, long distance, on line.

He was an amazing, quick witted and gracious man with a huge heart for our Savior. Chuck's kindness and friendship to me meant so very much. It was a Blessing to have had him in my life.

Diana and Brian, a huge hug to both of you. May GOD grant both of you strength and peace at this time.

We will all meet in the presence of our Wonderful FATHER GOD and HIS SON, LORD CHRIST JESUS.

We may have never met in person, but I feel as though I've known you forever. Our joint adventures with other friends ended with success! An awesome friend and debater will surely be missed, but the memories will live on in our hearts forever!

The trip to Florida to meet the gang will just have to be delayed and relocated until we all get to heaven. Rest and peace to you my friend, until we meet...

2 Corinthians 5:8 New King James Version (NKJV)

8 We are confident, yes, well pleased rather to be absent from the body and to be present with the Lord.

John 14:1-2 New King James Version (NKJV)

The Way, the Truth, and the Life

14 “Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me. 2 In My Father’s house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.

Chuck, a great listener who would never interrupt. He would only voice his opinion when asked, in the nicest of ways. Although we were friends distance apart, we were friends like neighbors. I will miss the phone calls when Chuck picks up with that caring voice.
