GO IN PEACE CHUCK!!!!! MY HEART GOES OUT TO YOUR FAMILY
I wish to extend my sympathy to Chucks' entire family. I worked with Chuck at the News and he wa a good guy.
Met Charlie at the News Lansing plant, later at DNA and when he subbed for Lansing State Journal. He once asked if I would be interested in a Jack Russel pup, so I guess he thought I was OK. I thought he was OK, too. My sympathy to the family.
