    Chuck was a good friend for most of my life. Even when we didn’t see one another for years at a time, seeing him was always a happy

    I was so very sorry to hear of Chuck Altman’s passing. Chuck and Judy did the flowers for my wedding November 1979, they were wonderful to work with and the flowers were lovely. It was always a treat visiting Altman’s Flower and Gift Store, always unique items. I am so very sorry for your loss.

They always had such beautiful selection for all occasions. They have been out of business for awhile now! But, I can always remember shopping there & having a wide selection & beautiful things to choose from, for all!! We will miss Chuck Altman, he was truly a gifted individual & will be missed by many people!! Our thoughts go out to the entire family for their loss!! Words cannot take away the pain you all must be feeling!! Please know that we are thinking of you all, in this time of need!!
