We wish to extend our greatest sympathy for your great loss. Chester was a great man and will be greatly missed by his family and huge number of friends.

Very sincerely,
JD and Denise

(Chester and his family live a few houses down from where my mother-in-law and grandmother, respectively, lived for many years, Lockie Chadwell. We know that they are both in heaven now and having a great reunion we can all look forward to.)

I will always remember Chester. When he was very young he worked for my parents. Our paths crossed many times over the years and not once did I ever see him when he wasn''t smiling. He was a good person and I know the angels are happy to have him back home.

My prayers and heart felt sympathy to all of his family.
