Charles Emerson

The world lost an amazing person the other day. Charles Emerson, aka “The Chuckster,” passed away on May 16, he was only 54. We called each other every full moon and he never failed to bring up his fiancée, Denise. He talked of how lucky he was and how much he loved her. He talked of how he had fulfilled his bucket list … he said, in the words of Tim McGraw, “I went skydiving, I went Rocky Mountain climbing, I went 2.7 seconds on a bull named Fu Man Chu” (we both agreed that riding a mechanical bull in a bar was good enough). He talked of how happy and content he was. Chuckster’s “true colors;” well those are crayons I want in my Crayola box. To those of you who knew him … lucky you! To those of you who did not, I am sorry for your loss.
