To Carol, Linda, Lois and Jim and family: Marilyn and I live in south Texas in the winter; I just read the obituary about Chuck and we want you to know that we are thinking of you all. Our memories of Chuck go back to 1957 when we came to Mankato to organize the Grace Baptist Church. We offer you our love and sympathy. John 3:16
