Uncle Chuck

My Uncle Chuck died today after a valiant fight against lung cancer.

Uncle Chuck was my Godfather along with Aunt June(Godmother). He was one of the biggest chatterboxes I've ever know, and boy could he tell a story!

Uncle Chuck would regal us children of the 70's with ghost stories, in the dark, outside. It was great! As he had all of our attention, my Grandpop (his dad) would jump out of the bushes and scare the bejesus out of us!!!!! And we loved it, knew it was coming and loved it anyway!

I am truly honored to have known him. My dad lost a wonderful brother today.

But now Uncle Chuck has some new people to tell his stories to up in heaven.
