I am sadden by the news of this man's death. Chuck and Rose, Chuck and Rose, it has always been Chuck and Rose. The two names were like one. I have seldom head one name without the other, the two were always linked whenever any one spoke of them. My heart breaks for you Rose and for Linda, Sherry, Larry, Karen, and your families, and for the sisters who have suffered another break in their family chain. It is hard to think of a world without a Chuck and Rose in it. Rest easy Chuck, you have family to watch over your Rose. God Bless you all and please God, watch over this family as they go though these trying times.
