Fondest memories of my favorite Uncle Chuck, Out in the garden analyzing the soil. Sending us home with the monster vegetables, and Aunt Irenes tomato juice. An amazing life, always a gentleman, a great company and always fun to be around.
I wish we had had some time in the last few years, but it slipped away.
Wishing you all the hugs and love now that we’ve missed.
Thinking of all of you.
Neil, Terri and Jack Hawdon
