So thankful to have had so much time with Chad from 2nd grade on up. Later on in adult life,he was there for me when I was in a dark time in my life .He showed up and told me he didn’t want me to be alone. I will miss him so much more than I already have over all these years. I won’t ever forget who he really was. Such a tremendous loss. I pray we all feel his presence each and everyday so that we may never feel alone, because that is exactly what Chad would want. ❤️ In spirit, love and hugs Chad, till we meet again. We won’t forget you!

Chad was a good friend to both of my daughters Jennifer and Jamie Beher, and when Jamie was diagnosed with Leukemia Chad was always there to lift her up. When Jamie lost her battle he was there for Jennifer her sister. Chad’s support for me during those dark days were unexpected and so appreciated. Chad was always kind, loving, respectful and managed to always make me laugh. He brought a ray of sunshine and hope when our lives were torn apart. Chad had the sweetest spirit about him and he will be missed. I imagined the reunion him and Jamie had and it brought a smile to my face and peace in my heart .
