I met CHAUNCEY years ago when he dated my sister cathy but we became friends right away he was such a caring person and a very funny person to be around there was never a dull moment when he was around.
I remember we always use to joke around with each other on who's taller it was pretty funny cause we are both the same height.
He is like a brother to me and I'll never forget him and I'll always cherish the memories that we have together
He may be gone but he'll never be forgotten
REST EASY and TILL WE MEET AGAIN my brother

I met Chauncey for a short while recently in a cultural substance recovery center.
Although we came from differing walks of life, we connected on a personal level as people who are dealing with growing into our unavoidable adulthood. Both too close for comfort to the point of no return.
I wish him all the best in his travel to the spirit world, and he will always be with me when I sing the 8 eagles song we learned together.
I'll miss you dude, but you won't be forgotten.
