Cousin Joe Meyers, so sorry to received the news of your Dad’s passing. I treasure the memories of the few times we came to visit and how much fun it was being around our Uncle Charlie! I know he will be missed but I’m sure he will be the biggest Cub’s fan rooting on his team along side my Dad rooting for the Atlanta Braves! I send my sincere condolences to you and all of your Dad’s family!

Rowena,
So deeply sorry to learn of Chuck's passing.  You've shared so many stories with me about Chuck I always thought of him as a friend. You were blessed to have such a wonderful husband as he was blessed to have you. You always made each other happy. Words can never describe the sorrow I feel for you. You are in my thoughts.

Rowena, I'm so sorry Chuck passed away - he was a super nice guy and I miss the fun we used to have at the Falcon's.  I recently lost my husband so I know exactly how you feel
