Condolence & Memory Journal

Nancy,
I am so sorry for your loss. I enjoyed our Super Bowl parties where I would always pull for the opposite team that Chuck was pulling for, just for fun. I am so glad we had the opportunity to have brunch and share that time with both of you. It made me smile that he loved his "flare hair" and wore it often. He will be missed by so many. My thoughts and prayers go out to you and your family.
