Our deepest condolences to Chets family. We got to know him and Joyce in fla. We loved them coming over to our house and chit chatting about every day events.. having lunch and driving to visit his favorite steer down the street. He always had fun stories to share. Thankful we got to be a part of his life even for a short 3 years). We will remember him as and miss him.
