"Chuck finally completed his gun collection. That was the hard part of the whole thing. He didn't have time to enjoy it and show it off. Everyone who knew Chuck knew how he took care of his special collection of guns and sabers. We would go to little towns all over the area and look for a Harpers Ferry or Springfield of a certain era that he didn't have. Family and friends who came to his house had to see the collection, and we all would go down to the gun room and hear the history of the new purchase. That truly was his hobby, his joy."
