    Sorry to hear of Chucks passing. My dad and Uncle Dick use to tip a few together and go mushroom hunting. They always seemed to have a good time. They would ride the countryside and chat about the old times. May God Bless his soul and my sincere condolences to his family and friends who knew him.
