In memory



My brother Charles lost his battle with cancer last week. I made it to Wichita in time to spend the last few days with him and my family. It was one of the hardest, saddest weeks of my life. It was also one of the best weeks of my life. The time spent with my family was priceless. We will all miss him, but know he is in a better place and no longer suffering.


The car on the front of the memorial is the 53 he rebuilt


The American Legion Patriot Guard







This photo really pulls at my heart. Ft. Riley provided the honor guard. This man didn't know my brother. He didn't know my family. He cried for a fellow soldier.


My brothers family.

Rest in peace Chuckles. We love you!

Oh Marti, I'm so sorry you've lost your brother. ***hugs***

I'm going to show this post to my husband, he rides with the Patriot Guard in Oklahoma. He will be so touched by that photo.
