He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High Shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress; My God, in Him I will trust.”

Surely He shall deliver you from the snare of the fowler And from the perilous pestilence. He shall cover you with His feathers, And under His wings you shall take refuge; His truth shall be your shield and buckler. You shall not be afraid of the terror by night, Nor of the arrow that flies by day,6 Nor of the pestilence that walks in darkness, Nor of the destruction that lays waste at noonday.

A thousand may fall at your side, And ten thousand at your right hand; But it shall not come near you. Only with your eyes shall you look, And see the reward of the wicked.

Because you have made the Lord, who is my refuge, Even the Most High, your dwelling place, No evil shall befall you, Nor shall any plague come near your dwelling; For He shall give His angels charge over you, To keep you in all your ways. In their hands they shall bear you up, Lest you dash your foot against a stone. You shall tread upon the lion and the cobra, The young lion and the serpent you shall trample underfoot.

“Because he has set his love upon Me, therefore I will deliver him; I will set him on high, because he has known My name. He shall call upon Me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him and honor him. With long life I will satisfy him, And show him My salvation.”

During World War II my dad was very sick. Chet's parents opened their home to my family. We traveled from Sacramento, CA to Phoenix, AZ to live with Chet and his parents. They had a small house that they shared with us for two winters. They also had a big reddish colored dog. Even though I was young I have many memories of that time. I'm sure that my sister and I weren't angels all the time, but my mom always remembered that Chet was the most incorrigible child that she had ever known.

The traits he had that made him a challenge to his parents also had a flip side. He looked at life as a free spirit before it was ever a popular thing. He had much success in life. Even my mom was hugely impressed when she saw pictures of him as a military pilot.

It's hard to realize that he is gone. We can still see the big smile and the sparkle in his eyes. There are many things that will remind us of him and make us think that he is not far away. We will always remember you with much love, Chet.
