    Cried for quite a while in front of that headstone. Long walk to get to it, gives you time to think. Maybe too much.

    Been so close to Arlington again several times lately but haven't made it in. Traffic in DC is beyond the pale and always someplace to be, but I'll get there again soon.

    God Bless You Brother. You were just as irreplaceable as we all suspected you would be and missed by many of us every day.

There are a good half dozen of us who are members on here that have been texting each other mostly every day for 6 years and that's because one good guy on here was seen as a rare human being and just a really good man.

    Well said Dave.

    Gentlemen, just wanted you all to know that the fond memories and respectful tributes you post here every year on this day truly warm my heart. AC loved this group and it's so inspiring to see that love returned, even beyond death. This is a truly special place with special people. All the best. - AC's eldest son.

    I've been busy at work tonight and was afraid that I wouldn't be able to post here before the thread was closed. As Jax said, I was reminded today of the now 6 years without Chuck. I miss him and his good deeds, especially keeping our little group together.
    Chuck still rides with me every shift in the form of his patch on the very front center of my gear. I know he's watching over all of us.
    Miss you Chuck!
