I just wanted to let you know my thoughts and prayers are with you at this time. I enjoyed the many talks and conversations me and Chuck had. He had a great sense of humor and will be missed.

Chuck will be greatly missed by Robert and I.  He was a very good friend, neighbor and
landlord to us.  We have farmed for Chuck and Mary Jane about 25 years. People used to
tell us we would only last one year because Chuck was hard to get along with.  We never
had a bad word between us.  We are so sorry for your loss.  Linda Souther

Brenda, Beck, Ronnie and Chuck:
I was so sorry to hear of your Dad's passing.  I so wish that I could be at the services, however I have another obligation that I can't get out of.  Please accept our sincere condolences.  We are praying for the whole Spurrier Family.  Love you.
