This past Monday my greatest friend, blood sister, and someone I have looked up to since childhood, Shelley, her father, Chuck passed away. 

Chuck was the greatest, funniest, awesome dad, and someone who I loved to be around. We have gone to Carlsbad every 4th of July with them ever since I can remember. Shell and I grew up dancing at Jeanne's. I would laugh at Chuck's sarcastic jokes. He lived a wonderful, amazing life. Anyone who knew him, loved him, and knew they were lucky to count him as a friend. The funeral is tomorrow, and I will finally be able to be with the Buckhannon family tonight. Chuck's family has been through this Cancer with him, and have suffered just like him. They are seriously so strong, and I look up to each and every one of them.

Chuck is now happy, and without pain, and that is the only thing that gives me relief. I know he is with his family every day. That's how much he loves his wife and kids, because he waited for them all to get to his bedside before he passed. I love him dearly, and will miss him everyday.

I am so grateful for eternal families at this time. It makes me realize how lucky I am, and how seriouslyyyy lucky I am to have Tanner, and to have started our eternal family together. This weeks been super hard for me, because I hate having my friends in pain. Add finals on top of that, and I've been a wreck. I can't even imagine how they're dealing with this. 

Anyways, I'm so thankful and lucky to have eternity with my loved ones. 

We love you Chuck!
