Chuck was a light in my life, even though he came into my life at time when he could no longer verbally share his knowledge with others his smile said it all, I list caring for him as one of my greatest Earthly gifts from God.May God bless and keep you all. Love Sarah

Cynthia and family I just learned of Chuck's passing. Please accept my condolences for your loss, my prayers are with you and family. Chuck and I worked together at Cedar Springs and he was always willing to share his professional knowledge to help others. I moved to Las Vegas about 9 months ago. I will be thinking of you and wishing you comfort in the days ahead.
Warm regards, Bill Lewis
