I took this photograph back in the 1970s. It is a picture of my Uncle Chuck, one of my mother's five brothers. He died this past week. He always thought he looked like Clark Gable and he could be just as wickedly charming, even though his personal life was full of sorrow. His oldest son had Down's Syndrome and died at the age of eight. His second son died as a teenager. His wife, after a long illness, also predeceased him.
Yet, Uncle Chuck had a knack for making us laugh. I guess now he's got everyone in heaven laughing, too.
