I remember Chad being this wide-eyed, ambitious person with a big heart for those he cared about, especially his mom and grandmother. I remember his dream of becoming a firefighter...and when he wanted to learn how to play the bass guitar. I remember his love of dogs, especially the wrinkly kind. I remember his love of the Saints and how he would stand in line for hours to get cheap tickets at the last minute. I remember when he made his grandmother a coffee proud he was to have built something. He was a person full of life, full of hopes and full of dreams who lost his way. We kept in touch over the years and no matter what he was going through, he still seemed positive about where he would end up one day.

I’m saddened to hear the news of his death. My heart breaks for Ms Linda and the rest of his family. I wish there were words to make it all better but I understand this loss to a certain extent, and I know there aren’t any. Im sorry that he’s gone so soon. May he Rest In Peace.
