Dear Sister Ashcraft, I extend my heartfelt sympathy for your loss.  As I opened the computer file and saw his picture, it was very evident of the kind of life he lived because of his countenance in the picture.  The data in his obituary confirmed the quality of men he is and will continue to be.  What a great couple you are.


I pray the your family will be safe and well blessed until you are all together again.


Most sincerely, Val Eberhard.

Marion,  I had the luxury of talking with Chuck several times in the past year. I was impressed with his successful career at the corporate level, 15 years as a consultant in the packaging industry, and still made time to be a great husband, father, and serve in the temple.  Our heartfelt condolences go out to you and your family.
