Condolence & Memory Journal

I just learned of Chuck's death. He was my boss in the early '70s in Okinawa. He was a good man and fine USAF officer.

Lorraine, Chuck and Steve.

It is with great sadness I learned of Chuck Senior's passing. I remember him fondly as a gentle man with kind words and patience for Chuck, Steve and Mary's crazy friends! There truly is not a day I don't reflect on the very fond memories I have of each of you and the great times we shared. Please know I hold all of you in my daily thoughts and prayers, especially at this very difficult time.

I'm very sorry I could not attend last night's Rosary and will miss the funeral tomorrow due to previous commitments. I would love to see you all before Chuck Jr. heads back to Florida. I can be reached at the e-mail address above or at 210 275-2275. I love and miss all of you dearly.

As a close neighbor, I will truly miss
you. I wished we could have known each other more. You were truly an asset to our Redland Heights community!

Chuck was a wonderful neighbor. I always enjoyed our visits; and I always knew he was someone that I could call in case of an emergency. We will miss him.
