Dan, Patti and family your dad was a jewel. He will shine on in the memories he created with those he interacted with.
I sat behind your family in church. The boys set an excellent example, so said my mom who implied I didn’t. Patti who was probably two entertained me. She would get her dad to hold her, then she would kiss him and snuggle against him. Chuck’s face would turn bright. Rose was not amused, but I was.
Shine on Chuck!

Rose and family,
My condolences to you on the recent passing of Chuck.
I remember you and Chuck visiting with Tony and Don at their home, and later at the DLTC facility in Delhi. He had a winning smile and the wit to go along with his personality.
May all your treasured memories bring peace to your heart and soul.
May God richly Bless you today and always.
Margaret Saunders
