“He always had a smile”

Charles K. (Chuck) Gardner, born 30 January 1959, in Jackson, Mississippi, was a gifted, loving, humble, caring son and brother.  He willingly got his mother to her 8 chemotherapy and 30 radiation sessions to treat breast cancer in 2006, saying, “it is payback time, Mom, for all you’ve done for me; you come first.”

We are shocked and deeply grieved at Chuck’s untimely passing 25 May 2007, in Delmar, New York.  We must accept this as God is in charge of the Universe and everything therein.
