My sympathies to you Mrs. Keilman and your family in your loss. I worked with Chuck at the Union Pacific as well as with his brothers Al and Bob. Chuck was a soft spoken fellow and I was glad to have known him. I hope Al and Bob and their families are doing well and hope to see them in the future. May all you Keilmans be safe in these trying times. God Bless.
