    We are so sorry to hear of your dad’s passing. We stopped at the retirement home last summer but he didn’t know us. We thought so much of your mom and dad and they will truly be missed.In case you have foforgotten, they set us up for our first date. We’ve been together for 47 years. Guess they had a good idea. Hugs to all 3 of you boys. We live in Arkansas and unable to attend but my heart will be with you during this time.

    My sincerest sympathies to Chink’s family. I have fond memories of Chink from when he and my Dad and Mother, Bill Shepherd and Evelyn Shepherd, worked at the Lewis Ford many years ago. I also remember fondly the Halloween the whole family came trick or treating to our house. He was a very special man and he will be missed.

    I am so sorry to hear that Chink had alzheimers. It is a cruel disease. I knew Chink when he was at Sheids. He was witty, funny as heck, intelligent, and caring. The world is a better place because he was in it. I do not think he could have had an enemy in the world. People loved him. My thoughts and prayers are with you at this difficult time.

    Chink was a great friend of my brother, Max Timmons, and was at our house lots of times as they grew up. Always lots of fun and good memories. As adults, our paths crossed often throughout the years, from Frankfort to Florida. We also worked with Mark at Purina. Our condolences to the entire family at the loss of their loved one.
