Vicki, I did not know your father but for a short 3 1/2 years. Billie and I really enjoyed him and his friends when they came into The Rendezvous to have a meal with us. Chet was truly a very nice man. Peggy Watson

Vicki,
Your Dad became very special to me in latter years. One day, we had quite a lengthy conversation in the old "Bubba's". After that, he attended our church for quite some timeand I always enjoyed our visits. I'm sorry for your loss. It's so final...Judy & David Lindhag
