Early this morning, my wonderful Uncle Chuck passed away. He was the father to Cousin Steve, whom you all know and love.
Uncle Chuck was a great father, loyal husband, doting grandfather, loving uncle and a friend to so many people that I do believe they will have to rent out Wrigley Field in order to get everyone in to the funeral. Seriously.
To say that Uncle Chuck was a funny guy is putting it lightly-my Uncle Chuck was a hilarious guy. Never a dull moment was had when he was around and I am so happy that I was able to sit with him on the porch of Cousin Steve's house this past summer and just laugh at his jokes, comments, one-liners, and politically incorrect look on life.
I remember family get togethers being so much fun only because he was there, and he loved each and every one of us. He found love and laughter in everything he did, even when he was not feeling well, he was able to make others smile and laugh.
A while back he sent me this email and I remember laughing so hard that my Diet Pepsi came out of my nose. He always was good with timing...
Don't worry about the weight. I went to the doctor the other day and found out I'm not overweight, I'm too short! I should be 11'9". I also got on the scale and the scale said, "Whoa, one at a time!" So I decided that from now on I will weigh myself on the Richter scale.
Love your fluffy,
So please take a moment and send up a prayer to God for my uncle. He will be missed, but I know he is making all of those angels laugh their spiritual butts off in Heaven.
Eternal rest grant onto Uncle Chuck O Lord, and may Your Perpetual Light shine upon him. May his soul and all of the souls of the faithfully departed rest in peace.
I love you Steve~you are always in my heart.
