Heather and family, So very sorry for your loss. You will be is our thoughts and prayers…..
I am so sorry for the loss to the family. Most of my memories with Chuckie are as children growing up on Kinsman Road. We were adventurers and explorers in the woods between our two homes. We had green apple fights, which only a country kid will understand and we spent hours playing baseball in the neighbors field. Basil Nottingham. Hide and seek and tag and he any my brother Eddie were quite the terrible twosome. Chasing us with frogs and the like!! I was born May 22 and he was born June 22, so I always TRIED to boss him around because I was older. Honestly the joys of growing up near cousins before the internet, We were blessed. Then life came along and Viet Nam came along and now we are taking turns passing on to our eternal resting home. Thanks for all the wonderful memories. Chuckie
