    Chuck held a special part in the lives of each of my family members. Corey and Holland always loved to go to his bike shop and ask him millions of question that Chuck loved to answer. We love you Chuck and Jeanette!

    am so sorry for your loss. Please accept my sincere condolences. Having a loved one pass away is one of the hardest things we have to deal with in this life. Please be assured that God does care and will remember your loved one. In times like these I find comfort from God’s word the bible. Revelation 21:4 is particularly soothing where God says” and he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.” Please remember and cherish the memories of you dear loved one and look forward to the time when death will be a thing of the past- just as God has promised.
