I am so saddened to hear of Chuck's passing. He was my godfather and I got to spend many hours with him and my grandfather with the chickens and dogs way back when. He was always kind and will be missed by many. Rest Easy and prayers to Kate and the rest of the family. Say hi to my Mom and Dad and my brother Frank and everyone else who went before you.💔
