    Dear Family of Chuck, May you find comfort with the lost of your loved one through conversations with family and friends, perhaps by looking at collected photographs and happy memories. Most importantly, may you find comfort through prayer to our heavenly father, Jehovah as he is the “God of all Comfort who comforts us in all our tribulation.” (2 Corinthians 1:2,3,4) Please contact me for more spiritual encouragement if you so desire.
