Dear Joan and Family, Our deepest sympathy and condolences for your loss. We enjoyed our time together when you and Charles were in Holland together with Jack and Sue. The time when Charles was wearing the dutch "klompen" and asked why so many people are named " T.E. Koop" . (which means "For Sale" in dutch. And when driving through the Veluwe nature park; he had to laugh because of so many signs saying " wild rooster" This is actually a grate in the road which stops animals from passing through. He said: " Where are the wild roosters" ? Lots of good memories. Our thoughts and prayers are with you. The Dekkers family from Holland. Adrian & Sho, Jan & Anja, Peter & Jeanette, Frank & Hilde.

Dear Joan and Family, Our deepest sympathy for your loss of your husband,father and grandpa. He was a wonderful,friendly and talented man. Our last visit visit with him was at the grocery storeand he was in his electric cart picking his Grandpa cheerios and telling us he had to get home to watch his grandson, Ben play ball. When he was checking out he purchased a purple flower for Joan's birthday and gave us a free smell! God bless you all and know you are all in our thoughts and prayersAlan & Fran

I cherish having Uncle Chuck as my uncle. Always so welcoming and accepting of us Hoffman’s adding to the happily crowded house on Kronke Dr. So lucky of us younger girls to share our love of horses with him! They don’t make them like Uncle Chuck anymore. Much love to my beloved Rortvedt Aunt and cousins.
