I was straighten up my books in the bookcase and I saw a piece of paper sticking out of an old notebook. When I open the notebook i found an old envelope with a Christmas card in it from Chuck and Jerri. We use to exchange cards every year. I always wondered why I stopped getting them. Anyway, I thought I will go online and see if I could find Chuck. I entered his name and Dodge, NE. His obit immediately popped up and I am sitting here stunned. We had so much fun together in Japan. He was the most homesick person I ever met. We talked a lot about home and family. He was a great person...salt of the earth type of person. Rest in peace my friend.
