Dear Jan, I am saddened to read that Chuck has passed. I remember the first time I met Chuck when John and I moved to The Landings 25 years ago. He walked daily past my house with his miniature black and white collie. Through the years we spoke a few words when we saw each other and I remember thinking what a soft spoken gentleman he was. l am keeping you and your family in my thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.
