  1. CandleImageI am so deeply sorry we did not know Chuck had passed away on Sept. 14, 2020. Randy Young and I (Jane Gonzales) are your next door neighbors.

    I noticed I had not seen Chuck around the house and I started to miss him. I had meant to call you, Caroline, to see about Chuck.
    Again, I am so very sorry about your loss of such a wonderful man. Please let Randy & I know if you need anything at all. Since we are close neighbors at 41 Normandy Circle, we am very glad to be of service if you should need us. We send our love and prayers to you, Caroline and your families.
    With great Sympathy, Jane Gonzales & Randy Young.

    I was so very sad to learn of Chuck’s passing. I mailed a card to your home address as I last knew it
    to be and hoping you would get it. Just in case you have moved I wanted to let you know you are in
    my thoughts and prayers. I think of you, Joannie, and Barb often.
    Love and prayers,
    Margaret Burrell
