Dear Chip, it seems like it was yesterday when you asked me if I was feeling alright on my way from the train station. I was heavily pregnant with Charles and you walked me home that day. The rest is history... You will no longer explain to Charles about your direct line to Santa Claus, nor come over to our family gatherings, but we will always cherish our time together and your stories. Until we meet again. XOXO

Christians never have to say goodbye, only so long for awhile. Chip was a man of faith, and he is now enjoying the presence of all his loved ones who went before him in heaven. He was a faithful friend of 64 years, and his weekly phone conversations will be greatly missed. Rest in peace dear friend.

Dear Chip-
After everything you told me and how hopeful you were since you were first diagnosed, I was completely shocked to hear that you were gone. May our Lord bless you and keep you. Rest In Peace, dear cousin and enjoy your four mile walks in Heaven. Love, Cousin Diane
