    Chuck and I first met in 1999 and started working together then. He has been a great friend and colleague ever since. We logged a lot of hours together, both in the car and in the field and he was a tremendous source of knowledge and a great teacher.

    We had many, many long hours of talks about everything from work to God and everything in between. He was a great friend and I am grateful to have been his. As we discussed today, his pain is now over and his reward at hand.

    Mary Alice and I send our deepest sympathy to you and your daughters.
