To the Gino, Jeaneen and the Holman family. I was so sorry to hear about the passing of Chuck. Chuck and I use to have some fun times and and lot of laughter together. I just want you all to know that it's so hard sometimes for us to understand why God does what He does, but we must believe and know that God makes no mistakes. Just know that everything that happens, it's all in God's Plan. So Hold On To God's Unchanging Hand and He'll get you through this. If He brings you to a situation, He will surely bring you through it. Trust in God and know that Chuck will be missed, but remember him for who he was and the memories of him will always be there. I'm Praying that God comforts all of you, and I know that God Will Take Care of You. Genny
