It was an honor spending time and getting to know Chuck in the few years I've been in the family. He welcomed me in with funny stories all about the ornery Posey boys. Never about Lea ann. The first time I met him he told me his poem about my Bobby having the biggest nose of all the Poseys. Bobby was mortified. I laughed and laughed. I heard that same poem many times over and over through out the years and I still can't remember or say it like Chuck could. Your smile and your stories will be missed. May you rest in peace Chuck.
