Dear Fran,
I’m so sorry about the passing of your dad. My first memories of him was when he would come to our house in Detroit - he and my step dad, Charlie Anderson worked together at Dixie Transport and NuCar. Later you an I played softball together for several years in Kentucky. Will keep you and your family in my prayers.

Dear Fran,
I am sorry to learn of Chester's passing but know he has made a great exchange and now his faith is truly in sight. He was a good friend to my family and a good soldier for the Lord. May God's grace and strength comfort you during this difficult time. John & I loved Chester.
