This is so hard to believe. I'm so sorry I didn't make it to the funeral. I've been down for 2 days with sciatica and not walking very well. Teresa, Chucky and Gail were a big part of my childhood along with Cindy 'Sigers' Ramage. Many fond memories of hopscotch, double dutch jump rope, playing house, running through the wildflowers behind their house, making forts, climbing in their guinea pig cage and pushing each other down the hill, the list goes on and on. Teresa was my age, but Chucky and Gail usually tagged along. I had the privilege of getting back in contact with him before his divorce. I cut his hair and all 3 of his kids for lot of years. I remember Christopher was so small he had to sit in the booster seat the first time they came. He was a wonderful Dad! He loved those kids with everything he had and was very proud of those babies. I can just picture my Mama and Daddy standing at Heavens' gates welcoming 'little Chucky' home! God bless and comfort you all...

June, Teddy, and family I am so sorry to hear of the loss of Chuckie. You all are family to me and James. We were talking tonight about the good times we had together, the camp in Mississippi, boy we had some good memories. You all are so loved and I pray that God's gentle peace and comfort will cover all of you during these hard times. Chuckie just beat us to our heavenly prize God has in store for us. LOVE YOU!!!

Weep but briefly for your loved one as he enters into the Kingdom of God,
for he shall posses a joy and peace that is unattainable on God's earthly realm.
Rather rejoice in his everlasting and total happiness, for his eyes have seen God.
Just as He has prepared a place of love and peace for those He calls home, may the Lord also prepare a place of comfort in your heart as you grieve this loss.

You are all in my thoughts and prayers. May God give you peace and comfort through the coming days.
