    We are so sorry that we won’t be able to be there to pay our last respects as we already had travel plans. I just want to say, as an in-law, how much I always admired Chuck’s devotion to his in-law family, too. He made sure that travel happened to make family visits possible and graciously hosted us when we came to visit. We did stop a couple of years ago and shared dinner and a good visit with him.
