Victoria,

I am not sorry that Chuck has passed. I am happy that I was blessed to have him in my life. There have been many jokes through the years that he was my true father but the reality is that in many times he was a father to me. There were many times when I turned to Chuck and you when I was living by myself in Boca for help and guidance and you both were always there for me. I will miss being able to argue footaball with him on a weekly basis and spending time BSing sports, politics and the topic of the day on the couch while he sat in his chair with Tebow on his lap. I wish I could be with you to celebrate Chucks life in the upcoming days. My love and prayers are with you and all of the family.

Love

Scott

Victoria,
Lori & I send our deepest sympathies. I always had the greatest respect for Chuck as did Lori. We were discussing his passing last night and She commented that of all the old Nationwiders her memories of Chuck stand out as one of best.
He will be missed.

We wish to express our deepest sympathy for your loss. We will be praying for your family at this difficult time. When I (Dennis) think of Charlie I often remember the whiffle ball games we had on Western Row Rd and his love for many sports and of course for the Gators. God bless you all.

Dear Victoria and Family,

We all know Chuck is now in a better place, that does not lesson the sadness of your loss of his love.
May all the wonderful, great memories all of you hold in your hearts bring you
peace.

Victoria, Diane, Chuck Jr. and family, we know Charlie is in a far better place, but that doesn't make it any easier. There will always be a hole in our hearts. Charlie was our life long friend. If there is anything we can do, let us know. Our prayers are with all of you.

Love, Tom and Ruth

Victoria and all the family--too many to name right now. I feel sorrow and my heart is heavy, almost too heavy to speak, but I can see Chuck now, sitting in Heaven with all your Schnauzers that got there first, sitting on his lap in a big recliner. I can hear Chuck say "TK, sorry I had to leave you to take care of things we cared about down there, but I now have a Higher Power up here who says, everything will be alright, put your faith in him. When you get here, the dogs and I will greet you at Heavens gate with all your four legged babies."

Maybe I'm upset also because he left me here but now I know he is still with me.

Love all of you.

TK

To all of the Fields family --- I am so sorry for your loss. Charlie was such a fun loving kind man. I have wonderful teenage memories of boating trips with Charlie and my parents, Ed and Norma Sidewand. Thoughts of Charlie only bring smiles to my heart. I'm sure his humor and laugh will be missed by all of his family. Our Lord will keep His arms around all of you as you get through this painful time.

With love and great memories, Sheila Sidewand Doerr

I can honestly say that there was NEVER a time that I was around Senior that I wasn''''t smiling and having fun. Although he is in a better place now, the world was certainly a better place with him in it.... I do and will always miss you. To Chuck Jr., Diane, and Victoria. All my love and prayers are with you. Hang in there!
P.S. Senior, say "hi" to my mom. I just know the two of you are probably giving high-fives and watching sports. Go Gators and Cats!!!!!!
Much love....
Jamie Sparks

Dearest Victoria,

I was so very fond of "lucky Chucky" and can still envision him sitting at the tables of the Beau Rivage with that twinkle in his eyes. What a loving and fun loving soul Chuck is-for that never goes away-and I wish for those memories to lighten you and last forever.
Mom and I are saddened by your loss and will be keeping you and the entire Fields family in our hearts, thoughts and prayers.

With all our love,

Julie and Ann Edlinger
