CHUCK HAS LEFT THE BUILDING!
He's left the planet, actually, I assume. Your comments and prayers, your thoughts really worked, Chuck released his body knowing he was truly loved at 10pm PDT July 1st. He told us weeks ago he wouldn't be around for the 4th, he was correct.
Your comments are a huge blessing to all of his family, and we thank you soooooo much! Wish I could be more creative, more like Dad in how I express this to you...but I know he would say it something like this:
THE CURMUDGEON HAS CHECKED OUT!
Our love and thanks for a great ride for our Dad, Grandfather, Cousin, Uncle and old friend! You are ALL AWESOME! I probably cannot respond to each and every one of you, so please know our heartfelt thanks and hugs across the web! XXXXOOOO
Blessings, Kate and family
