    I will miss them both. They were a dear couple and we were friends for a lot of years. I loved them.

    I am so completely sadden by the news of both Uncle Chuck and Aunt Louise passing. We were not related by blood but by love and I had known them my entire life. They were close to my parents. So many wonderful memories of them. My most Sincerest Sympathies to Linda, Tom, and Peggy. And to all of the Eccleston and Cole families. They will be deeply missed.
