My deepest sympathy to the family for your loss. Chad my friend who I had the pleasure of meeting a while back. He will surely be missed but not forgotten. Some People just make a certain kind of impact on your life and he was one of them. I know that I cannot take away the pain that you must be feeling but there is one who has all power and that one is God so I ask him to comfort you and keep you close to him for healing and protection now for for always.
