  1. Dear Gary and Lorraine,

    My heartfelt sympathies to you and your families. Me, Chuckie, and another friend Freddie Perkins entered the Marine Corps together in 1967. We seperated during the war but were reunited 1n 1970 and lived together in Yuma, AZ for a year or so. We remained friends when we returned back to Somerville. Chuckie was always a good friend and will be in my thoughts forever.

    Chuckie: “Semper-Fi” We shall meet again.

    Sincerely,

    Joe Kenneally

  2. Ellie – I am so sorry for the loss of Chuckie – he was a wonderful man – I am so glad that I got to know him over the last few months. Love – Kristen Chute-Johnson
