    My condolences to Chuck and the all the Hollosy Family. The last time I saw Chuck was at the Austin High School Annual golf outing and as I recall we had ask Chuck to join my classmates for dinner and he told us he needed to leave because it was his wedding anniversary. I also had the pleasure of meeting Mary Ellen up in St. Clair , MI 48236 at the Little Bar when we my wife and I happened to be there at the same time. Chuck your devotion to Mary Ellen was consistent with the kind of man that you have always been. Chuck we all grieve with you for the loss of your beloved Mary Ellen. We will keep her and you in our prayers.
