Nina and family I am so sorry to hear of the loss of Chuck. He will definitely be missed by all of his family and friends. I have many fond memories of Chuck but my favorite is his kindness and when he walked in our house one day and said “ it is slipperier than snot on a door knob out there”. You all are in our hearts.
Much Love,
Kimmie

All memories of you (Chigger) are fond ones. But I remember when you came into the Doctors office I work for and I didn't realize you were on the schedule. You were standing at the front desk window and I came in. You said "OMG the little Cuthrell girl, I didn't know you worked here, take good care of me". The whole front staff fell in love with your southern charm. You were a breath of fresh air in this harsh world. RIP beautiful man.
