Toni,

I love you, sweet friend! I’m carried back to our precious high school days and friendship. Chase’s baby shower was given at our home. I can vividly remember holding him as a sweet, snuggly baby! I cannot begin to imagine the grief and pain. However, I do remember how my mom grieved over Allen. Children are a gift from God. From what I’ve heard and read Chase was an amazing young man. I’m praying for you! Sadly, I will not be able to be there tomorrow, but please know I’m praying without ceasing! Love you, Misty

Dear Dandy, Sue, Toni, Marty, B.R, Sherry and family;
I’m so saddened to hear of Chases’ passing. He was a proud young American as well as a proud Marine. While I didn’t know him well each encounter was a pleasure. I know each of you and you raised a fine young man who has, in our minds, departed this life way too early. However, we all know that God has his own plan and that we may not always understand, but in time we will. While I know that no words printed or spoken can totally comfort you right now, just know he is in the hands of God. I know I’m not around much anymore but always know that I love each and every one of you and always will. If there is EVER anything that I can do, please don’t hesitate to let me know.

My love to all,
Keith Marshall
