He really had a bad few months with pain but he is in peace now.  Hopefully picking out his new John Deere in heaven.  Carolyn has been here along with Chris and both have been great.  Son, Chuck was on the phone with us this morning during his last hours.  Just wanted you all to know I am fine and  relieved to have his pain gone.  Hugs and Love to all, MK

MK: I am so sorry to hear that Chuck has passed away. I know, from your posts, that he fought hard and endured more than any person should have to. I am quite sure that he has already picked out the new John Deere and all of the extra's that go w/ it. His pain is gone and he is sitting on that big tractor, w/ a grin the size of Texas on his face.

I, along w/ everyone on this board, wish that we could be there to hold your hand and give you the support and love that we have for you. But just remember that we are sending it all to you and are here if you need anything from us. Please take care of yourself. Lean on your family and friends and let them help you thru these next few trying days.

There is a quote from Anne Frank that reminds me of how you described Chuck.

" I do not think of all the misery, but of the glory that remains. Go outside into the fields, nature and the sun, go out and seek happiness in yourself and in God. Think of the beauty that again and again discharges itself within and without you and be happy."
Anne Frank

Much love and many prayers,

Oh, MK, I'm so sorry that you've lost him. I'm so relieved that he is no longer in pain. Deb was right when she says we all wish we could be there to hold your hand and help your heart heal. I know you will have your family there to do that. Please know that we are with you in spirit.

Love and hugs...

I am so sorry for your loss. No matter the cause, the route down the road of grief is full of curves and bumps. Take care of yourself during the journey. I found joining a bereavement support group some months after the death of my husband to be very helpful.
Peace to you and all in your family.

  I'm sending much love to you. I just saw your post tonight and you will be in my thoughts and prayers. You have always been so very good to me and everyone. You were on the phone checking on me in the hospital. I'll never forget. You mean so very much to me. I'm so sorry but I too know that he is in heaven. He's probably already met up with many of our sisters. Love to you always, Di

Been awhile since I have been on the board.  I know that your loss of Chuck happened almost a year ago but I wanted to let you know how sorry I am.  I lost my Mother in February and still have flashbacks of life with her.  I know that you are coping well but I wanted to let you know that you are in my thoughts and prayers.


Love and Hugs,
