  • My condolences to Bryan and the family at such a time as this. I met Chuck at the Post Office where we worked together, he as a mailhandler and I as a clerk. We worked the same shift. He always greeted me with a pleasant hello, and would always help me when I asked. We weren’t close friends, but we were cool friends. Anyone who graduated from DeLaWarr High School had to be cool.
    Chuck knew Jesus as his personal Savior so I look forward to seeing him once again, and what a
    day of rejoicing that will be. May GOD comfort you one and all,

    Shirlanda Miller Tr3 mail clerk
