I will miss him everyday. We grew up more like brother and sister then uncle and niece. I remember the day he came and told me he was sick. Then when my health issues surfaced, where did I go but to his house to talk to him. Not only was he my uncle, but I considered him a good friend. May the Lord guide you on your way!

Dear Deb and family,

Sue and I were shocked to hear of Chucks passing. We were aware of his long time health problems. I had seen Chuck quite some time ago and talked to him for quite a while and he seemed to be healthy and he told me that he and his doctors were quite confident that they had whipped his health problem. He was quite upbeat. The light that he brought into the world will not be diminished, but he is shining now in Heaven. God Bless and strengthen you in your time of sorrow and God will watch over you.

I knew Chuck years ago, I thought he was a pretty cool guy back then. I remember when he got back from Germany. Many good memories of him and his family. Prayers to the Lish family at this time.
