Pack up the moon and dismantle the sun,
Pour away the ocean and sweep up the wood;
For nothing now can ever come to any good.”

    Awwww Chuckie….

    You were part of those sweet & fleeting childhood memories, growing up on Edna Street in Baden, that I now cherish as an adult.
    You were one of “the good guys” for sure!

    Now you & your lovely Sue are together…

    My deepest sympathy is extended to your family at this sad time.
