  24. To Chuck’s family,
    I had the honor and privilege of working with Chuck for 2.5 years when I ran Firstcare. I can say without hesitation that Chuck was among the finest people I have ever worked with and he was always a ready ear, a man with steady advice, and quick with a retort to a bad joke I might tell. He was a great leader, who led with love from his heart, and he touched all around him in many ways. He made me a better person just to know him and I am deeply saddened at his passing. Know that he touched us all in so many ways- big and small – and he was a shining example of walking his faith every day. I deeply admired him and will always treasure our time working together.
