Condolence & Memory Journal

I wish we would have known that Chuck passed away. The Mckinstry's of Beaver Dam, WI knew him well many years ago and got him started in the furniture business. I personally remember going to his store to pick up furniture that we ordered together as a business. He got us to purchase lift chairs from a company called Noritage (which is no longer around) and have since built that part of our business into a big thing. Say HELLO to Hellen if she is still around. Ric Fiegel from Mckinstry's Home Furnishings.

We are so sorry to hear of Charlie's passing. We always enjoyed his visits at Prairie Gardens in Sun Prairie and he always brought us news on what was happening in Marshall. God bless you all. Gene Schuster and Sue Miller
