Dee and family,
I am so sorry to hear of Chuck's passing. It is much too early. I knew Chuck from grade school. Sometimes, when a good man is taken at an early age, I wonder if God just needs him in Heaven to spread all that goodness that he had here on Earth. Your family is in my prayers.
my thoughts and prayers are with you and the kids, Chuck had such a talent, and I always thought of him when I saw my daughters house,peace be with you and your family.xo
I guess it doesn't matter if your ten or approaching forty. The loss of your father is still the loss of your father...your dad. I wish I could offer you some comforting advice that would ease your pain. But it changes. the memories will change but your love will always hang on. P.S. I will always remember the crawl space...your dad was awesome!
My deepest sympathy to each of you. I know how much you will miss your husband, father, grandfather. May you feel the comfort & love of our Heavenly Father to help you through this heavy trial. I promise he will watch over you always.
I am so sorry for the loss of your father. Thoughts and prayers with you and your family.
