Journal entry by PAM ZAUGG

Chuck lived a life that was filled with integrity and purpose.  As we shared in the service we thank God for these last 2 years and the closeness it brought for Chuck to God and for each of us to each other.  

You are a part of this journey for you took time to pray and to support us in various ways.
 THANK YOU!   Please understand how much your prayers mean and still mean as we move forward!

Here is the link to the service in case any of you were not able to watch it. (copyright laws took the music away from the slide shows but everything else is there).

God is working in our family as we all miss Chuck so much.  There is an empty place that we will continue to claim his spirit and feel his presence with us.  He is still with us in so many ways!  

Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus…. Hebrews 12:1-2. We believe Chuck is part of that cloud of witnesses!  He wants us to move forward and keep loving..  keep living...  "Work hard and play hard".... "If a job is worth doing, do it right!".... His last verse claimed:  “This is the day the Lord has made;  Let us rejoice and be glad in it!”  Psalm 118:24

As I say goodbye to all of you, my friends through Caring Bridge, please hear me when I say you have been a part of this journey and we thank you!  Chuck would want to invite you to come and share our Northwoods Paradise with us!  Please contact me and let me know if you want to visit.  Share your involvement here with me and your interaction in this journey.  Your prayers are now holding me as I move forward.. God is carrying us and He is a faithful God!  

 Sarah Young says this in her book, 
Jesus Lives: "Recognize that you are on the threshold of a new adventure, and that I will be with you each step of the way.  As we venture out together cling tightly to My Hand.  The more you abandon yourself to Me, the more exuberantly you can experience My Love"  Chuck's amazing love for me is what I miss so much, but God has promised to love me more!  

 “There is no greater love than this: that a person (Jesus) lays down his life for his friends!”  John 15:13 />
