My deepest sympathy goes out to Tommy, Thollie and family. Sometimes we do not understand why God chooses to call a family member home but I know that God must have specials plans for Chad in heaven. I work with Chads mother Thollie and she has one of the biggest and kind hearts I have ever known. She always reaches out to those less fortunate than she has been in life. And now I pray that God will send his angels to comfort her and her family in the days to come. My love and prayers are with each of you.

While I did not have the opportunity to meet Chad, I grew up with his Mother, who was one of my best friends. By knowing her, I know he was a fine young man. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you during this most difficult time.
