    I’m at a loss for words, yet I have so much to say. I’m going to miss his sense of humor. I’m gonna miss his laugh. I’m going to miss him getting after me about drinking too much mountain dew. But most of all I’m going to miss him calling me just to check up on me and telling me he loves me. I love him with all my heart, forever and always.

  37. Rosetta Club Pogo name Prosie87 on January 20, 2017 at 1:27 pm

    Prayers goes out to Nancy Beardsley and the Family. I met Chuck when he came into my bowling room one day. He was a very nice man so I ask him if he wanted to join our bowling team on Club Pogo. We played every night, and Chuck always picked on me then he would laugh and say it wasn’t him. Writing this brings tears to my eyes cause Chuck was a wonderful, caring and, thoughtful man. There is so much I can say about Chuck, but the best one is that he is gonna be miss so much. Nancy he loved you and his family so much, and I am so sorry that you loss your wonderful husband. He is in no more pain, and will always be remember by the ones who loved him.
