Wow ,I bet this news caught everybody by surprise. I have not seen Chip in over a year but this news flooded me with so many pleasant past memories. We all love Chip and so many times through highschool, college and ski trips, and hanging out together we were living life to the fullest. My heart goes out to everyone who had a chance to share time with Chipper.
