To Aunt Pat, Chuck, Andrea and family –
I have so many great memories of Uncle Chuck, my Godfather. I’ll always remember the family gatherings when I was a child and he would tell such funny stories and make us kids laugh. He was always so loving and kind. I can’t believe he’s gone. He will be missed by everyone who knew him.
With love from Win
Loretta L.Lawyer and Family,
Aunt Pat and Family,
Our deepest sympathies are sent you and your family. You are in our prayers. May Peace be with you.
