    I will never forget how welcoming he always was everytIme I saw him. You knew he’d be there with the biggest Smile and huge hello. If I was having a bad day he would always make it brighter. I feel very blessed to have known him if only for a short time.

    • Elsie Robertson says:

      Thank you all for your special thoughts and prayers. The kids and I miss him dearly but we have so many good memories that I will cherish forever. I am doing pretty good but it will take time, but thank you everyone for what you have done for us. Love, Elsie.

  • Woody & Judy says:

    Elsie, we have such good memories of travelling with you both in the Baja & Yuma. We are so sorry about Chuck. Our favorite memory of Chuck is the time in Mexico when Chuck took off somewhere wearing shorts, no shirt, and no wallet. Of course, he got stopped by the local police and had no wallet. He wouldn’t pay them a bribe (for the Principle of it) so he was taken to the Magistrate (or whatever) and he had to pay a fine of almost $400. Woody went to the little store to get ice about the same time, waved at the police, got his ice, passed the police again & waved again, and got back to the rig. Chuck came back furious. Then Woody realized he hadn’t had his wallet either. We enjoyed you both so much! We are hoping you are doing well. Our condolences. Judy & Woody
