As with many, we were saddened with the sudden absence of Chuck, but rejoice in his immediate presence with the Lord. Chuck was part of our small group family at Rolling Plains UMC. There will be a huge vacancy in our church, small group and the other places where he always lender a hand.
To you the family, thank you for sharing him with us. His kindness was experienced by so many. Be comforted in knowing this.
