have a memory or condolence to add?

There is more than one memory that I have of Ches. One of them is the love and respect that Ches and Linda had for one another. It was always wonderful to see. The next memory I have was of his car, the Casanova. The last memory I have was probably the most embarassing. We were having lunch (Kelly and I) with Ches and Linda. I am not sure why, but I probably thought that I was playing footsies with Kelly when all of a sudden Ches said, "who keeps playing footsies with me." That stopped me. (Linda, I really thought I was playing footsies with kelly :)).... I am so sorry for you and your families' loss. He was truly a wonderful man.
