    I was saddened to read that Chuck has passed on; he always seemed like too great a force of nature for this to happen. I have always remembered joyfully the times he came into our department and talked with me or joined Bart and I on the loading dock and talked while we worked. His enthusiasm for life was contagious. Most of our friends here are retirees from Minnesota (Wisconsin has been called the land of 10,000 Minnesotans) and many know about Park Nicollet. I get to tell them about all of the most excellent people I was privileged to work with but with Chuck I was doubly privileged: both Bart and Chuck made my life better. Although once I learned about what I think Chuck called his Liars Club I had to be a bit more careful about what I believed when we talked. I wish his family many good memories to help the time pass. Thank you Chuck and rest in peace. This may not be appropriate but while shovelling snow this morning I thought about Chuck in Heaven talking to God and St. Peter about a few suggestions he has for improving Heaven. He was a good man.
