    Please accept our sincere condolences for the loss of your loved one. This is one of the most difficult things we must face in our life. May it comfort you to know that others are deeply touched by your loss. God assures us at Psalms 34:18 that he is near to those broken in heart and those crushed in spirit he saves. Jesus also promises that we will be able to see our loved ones again. May these bible thoughts bring you comfort at this most difficult time.

    Chuck was such a great guy. He loved his family so much and you didn't have to be related by blood to be Chucks family. If he thought you were family then you were family. He would give you the shirt off his back if you had a need. I loved that when I saw him which was about once a year we would talk like it was just last week when we saw each other. He was quick with a smile and a laugh. RIP Chuck you will be missed.
