I will remember Chuck for his affability. He was always fun to talk with as he had a good sense of humor and cheerfulness. God bless him.

Good evening. Thank you for the email. Sorry to hear about your Dad's passing. It was neat to see an updated picture of him. He was a fun Dad. Please know you are all in my prayers, and that your Dad is in my prayers too. It was always fun to come up to Minnesota to spend time with you and your family. In the Peace of Christ, Sister M. Michael
