Our prayers are with all the family. I had the pleasure to work with Chan, at Maconpower. Chan had a story or a joke every time I would come into the office. I loved talking to him and sitting back listening to his wisdom. Man he would get me laughing. Chan you will be missed my friend.

Mrs. Pat, Deana, Doug and family. I have not saw you in a while but I can tell you that I so thought so much of Chan while working at B & H. Buster and Jeanette loved him so much. all of you and Buster's family has been like mine for years, 17 of those years while working at the shop. And they are still my family . Chan was a fine man and I am so honored that I have had that chance to know him and spent many conversations cutting up with Chan when he would come to B & H. Your family has been added to my prayer list and I will continue to ask God to comfort each of you in the way that no other can. I pray for strength and peace to fill each of you through this most trying and difficult time. God bless you all.

RIP to our Daytona vacation buddy; always made us feel like family when we caught up down there. Will never forget the good times we spent together, especially happy hour and him dancing with Rhonda, long conversations, the tents, and quiet evenings, occasionally including fireworks. Will miss him when we go back, and look forward to seeing the rest of the family whenever we can arrange same vacation time through our good friends, Jeff and Dea Jones.
