  • Chuck,
    We spent a lot of time with you and my best friend Shirley. I knew the first time I met you which was some 18 or 19 years ago that you and Shirley belonged together. I loved you very much.
    First for making your Molly happy and second for the person you were. Howard and I will miss you very much however I am so happy you are no longer suffering and you are home where there is no pain. Your Molly is going to be just fine. She went the last mile but she now knows God wanted you home with him. Until we get to be together again just be happy in your eternal home.
    Howard and Joyce
