Ah, Chuck, we will miss you, and we won't forget you! You have been a big presence in our families for many years--I will miss your gentle (and not so gentle) prodding, your love for your family, your knowledge about many things.

Dear Feller family,
It has been a privilege knowing Chuck. He and Diana's father (also a Korean war veteran) enjoyed visiting about mutual interests. Chuck is just a positive fixture in this community. I (Diana) remember Norma Hoover West called Chuck when things wouldn't work because she knew that either he would fix it for her or would tell her what to do about it. She trusted him. The Utopia Community Auction will seem very dull without his presence. Our hearts go out to his family. He is greatly loved and admired by so many. May God grant you His Own Presence as consolation in your loss, as we all look toward eternity together.

So sorry I can't be there to share and comfort you during this life changing event,
but my heart and spirit is in tune with yours. Loved all the encounters with Chuck, he was genuine. Loved his dry wit and bantor, always had a marvelous time. He was a stubborn old man who loved his Lord, family , fellowman and country. What a legacy he has left. A family who loved him, cared for him and yes, tolerated him. LOL. People are put in our pathway for a reason, and I think I am better for having met and enjoyed his path crossing mine. Thank you God for this human,( 'uman as Allie says) you put on this Earth and now taken home to wait for all the rest. Love you Kathy!! Til we meet again, Eunice......................................................+)

I just wanted you to know how much I love you and how much I love and miss Pepa. You two have always been such an important part of my life and I have so many fond memories being a part of your lives. I am so thankful that my children had so many years with Pepa and just know that he loved you so very much. You have been so strong and loving through this entire process and I know he as well as the rest of the family appreciate all that Pepa and you have always done for us. We love you dearly, and we are so blessed to have you both in our lives.
