Muriel, Jeannette, Cliff and families. Our thoughts are with you during this sad and difficult time. Hopefully you can take solace in knowing that "Uncle Chunk" lived a very full life, with the love of his life. And, was known as a very kind and gentle giant. (Although as teens, I suspect C. and J. challenged that gentle demeanor. lol) As I have said to you before, I can still hear his hearty laugh. We should all be blessed with such an epitaph. Love to all, Bob, Barb and Nikki
