DEBBE, MARK SENT ME THE MEMORIAL PAGE YOU MADE FOR CHUCK. I TOLD
MARK THAT CHUCK IS SMILING. I CAN HEAR HIS LAUGHTER. HE ALWAYS HAD A
CERTAIN WAY OF LAUGHING BEST WHEN HE WAS BEATING ME IN MONOPOLY, OR
CATCHING MORE FISH THAN ME, OR AGGRAVATING HIS SISTER. HE WAS A SPECIAL
FRIEND TO ME.
BROTHER DROWNED IN BERMUDA IN '66. HE WAS IN THE COAST GUARD, AND HE
TOO LOVED CHUCK. SO, HERE'S TO YOU, CHUCK, AND ALL THE OTHERS WHO WENT
WITH YOU. YOU GUYS WILL NEVER BE FORGOTTEN.
