    Chuck I have know your Sister and Mother for many, many years. So I feel as though knowing these wonderful, kind, loving women was to know you as well although we only met briefly in a hospital waiting room I knew you to be like them. Rest peacefully now as God holds you in his arms.

    Chuck, you have brought tears to many people today, but that will soon be forgotten. What they will remember is how you made them smile and brought laughter into their lives. You survived many trials and tribulations throughout your life and had the will to “keep on truckin”! I praise God that you are finally at peace and no longer suffering! May your hitch-hike through Heaven be as fun as your hitch-hiking across the U.S. did when you were young. I miss you much and will love you always!
    Janet
