Never will forget the time in 7th grade when Chuck and I made stew over an open camp fire out in the woods on his parents farm. When the stew was done we brought it to his mother to taste. She dipped her spoon into the bowl beyond the bits of leaves, twigs, campfire ash, and anything else the wing could have blown into the stew and tasted it. She then looked at us both, smiled, and said “This is the best stew I have ever tasted”. God Bless her and God Bless Chuck. This is an eternal memory! Then there was the homemade halloween masks…..I could go on and on… best childhood friend.
