HI Ann and kids,
So sorry to hear of Chuck's passing. Carol Manger left us a message this afternoon. We're up in the Chicago area and unfortunately won't be able to make it down for the wake or funeral. We send you our love and prayers and ask Christ to be with you in your sorrows. Chuck had a great life and will be missed by all.

I first met Chuck in 1969 at Custenborder Field. He was a good man.

I am so sorry for your loss. Although we're neighbors, I didn't get to know Chuck well, but it was obvious that he was a good man. Your family has my deepest sympathy, and I'll remember you all in my prayers that God will comfort you all and give you peace to help you through your loss.
