Sue, Charlie, Christine, and Drew,
I have no words. As I drove through northwestern MA on July 8, I was speaking to my wife about Chad. Little did I know he had just left us. I noted that Williams College had a remote location like a military academy. That brought up Fork Union. I still have all the letters that Chad would write to me while he was there. Although he was less than thrilled to be there, he took it in stride—as he did with most things in life. Always smiling, always helpful. Chad cared too much for everyone else’s happiness than to take care of his own. When I first came to Clover Hill High in 1986, I was a transfer from another school and had no friends. And being one of a handful of black kids did not make the transition any easier. Chad quickly adopted me. He became one of my truest and dearest friends throughout high school. He visited me in college. He was a groomsman (ponytail and all) in my wedding. And though we lost touch shortly thereafter, he always remained in my thoughts. Chad, I haven’t seen you in a long time but I know I will see you again, my friend, my brother.

Chad has been such a light in my life as I shared many years with him in my early growing up years on up through college. Chad has always been such a great friend to be around and always playing ball together whether basketball, football, or tennis and often rooting together for our Hoos. He was always sharing a smile and was so fun to poke fun with. He would take a jab so well as well as to give one back in such a funny and non-offensive way. Totally miss my friend and look forward to uniting with him again soon in our Lord Jesus's kingdom with that uplifting smile and positive attitude.
