I was so sad to hear about Uncle Chollie. I remember growing up and always being so excited to see Uncle Chollie when we would visit him in Kentucky and when he would visit us in NJ. So many laughs and so many fun times. I could go on forever….Uncle Chollie you will surely be missed. Much love, Michelle
