Memories & Candles
I am so sorry to hear of your loss. Your family has been a part of my life for as long as I can remember. Barb and I used to walk to your grandmothers after school or stop by the office and drop our books(guess we were lazy). I often babysat for you girls and your Aunt Diane was always someone my mom considered a special person from when they grew up together. When I visited Bob in the hospital

I'm so sorry about Chuck. I used to work at Casey's in Oskaloosa, and he was such a nice man. He told me one day he liked people to call him by name and introduced himself. Every time he came in after that he called me by name. A wonderful person and a customer you were always happy to see walk through the door!! He will be missed.

I was so saddened to receive the news of Chuck's death on Monday morning from Andy Clark. Barnhouse publications have published my "Performing Percussionist Method Books" for many years. Indeed, our endearing friendship, laughter, jokes, and wonderful camaraderie made our friendship very special.
With my deepest sympathy,

Lynn and Ann: I was sorry to hear about the passing of your father. I always enjoyed visiting with him when I was at your house. He was a wonderful man and interesting to chat with. Please know that you are both in my thoughts during this sad time.

Lynn and Ann,
So sorry that you have lost your father. It's not easy to loose a parent. Prayers and comfort to you in the days, weeks, and months to come. May God help you through this time and that He will give you peace during this time.

I developed a special relationship with Chuck over the past several years, starting out as his barista or waitress and quickly turning to a friend. I will never forget the night that I signed my name "Meg" on his check at the Peppertree. He asked me, "I thought your name was Megan?" I responded with "well my friends call me Meg". So Chuck asked if he could call me "Meg" and from that day on he never called me anything
