    Please accept my heartfelt sympathy for the loss of your loved one, Charles. May you find comfort in the words written at John 6:40, where God promises to bring back to life those we have lost in death by means of a resurrection. In the future He will also do away with our enemy, death. (Revelation 21:4) This gives us the wonderful hope of being reunited with our loved ones, forever, Until then, I hope the memories of Charles and these promises from God comfort you in the days to come.

    I’m so sorry you have lost Chuck. I know you would have liked to have had him for another 20 years. I hope they are playing Ava Maria for him right now.

    Judy, I am so sorry for your loss. Chuck was one of the kindest people I have ever known. It was a joy to work with him at Western Reserve. My heart is broken with the loss of this sweet, gentle man. Rick and I wish you peace and comfort in the days to come.
