Please accept my deepest sincere condolences during this time of grief. My hope is that the words of Christ Jesus be comforting, when he stated that "the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out" (John 5:28, 29). We can also take comfort in God's personal promise to "wipe out every tear" and even "death will be no more" (Revelation 21:4) May you look to the Bible for comfort from our creator, Jehovah God.

Please expect my deepest condolences. Debbie as your tastefully simple consultant. I had the pleasure of meeting Chuck, I am so saddened by the news of his passing. He will be missed I always looked forward to your home tasting party . They were filled with fun and I meant that I could stop by and talk to Chuck. He was a wonderful person with a lifetime of stories. I remember after the 2008 election. He had the most wonderful stories about Joe Biden . He was such a special man . I really enjoyed our talks and his Amtrak stories were so great . When I moved away from Delaware I took such pride in my friendship with you and Chuck. Thank you so much for you love , kindness and friendship. Offering you peace and prayers to your family comfort during this time .
