I've been trying to think of something significant and meaningful to say, but I'm really at a loss. As most of my long-time readers remember, I was a volunteer firefighter in Athens, West Virginia for a while. Through that experience, I made a lot of friends. One of them was a man named Chuck.
Chuck was only 23.
Chuck died over this past weekend after a long battle with brain cancer.
Chuck, you will be missed, not only by myself, but by all the men and women of the Athens Volunteer Fire Department.
Good bye, buddy.
