Sad, sad news Bill. Chuck will be dearly missed. I pray his family is consoled and comforted through this trying time in their lives. If there is a way I can help please let me know.
Chuck's battle with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease was a courageous one I'm sure. It hits close to home too as my Dad suffers from pulmonary fibrosis which is a condition of the lungs also.
Chuck's family can take comfort in these words:
"He that believeth in me, though he die, yet shall he live". John 11:25
