    So sorry to hear about Chick’s passing. I really enjoyed knowing him over the years, since I was thirteen. We kept in touch over all those years. We would always send Christmas cards listing our pets’ names too! As I pass Pat, I’ll miss him! So glad you all asked me to conduct his funeral, as I did his dear Pat’s. Sincerely, Steve Jaggers

    Dana and Nick, so sorry to hear the passing of your father, just be thankful you had him as long as you did. He was very kind and generous to me and felt more like a dad then an in-law. He was smart and funny. I remember the story he told of having a sinus operation and the cotton swabs laced with cocaine shoved up his nose. Said he felt like he was walking a foot off the ground the rest of the day! Dana I remember him loaning us his car to go the mall or drive in. That little yellow 4 speed Chevette. My thoughts are with you and all your family and my thoughts are always with you Dana.😔

    Dana & Nick, I just found out about your Dad. I am so sorry. Your parents agreed with mine to be my godparents. Though I saw Chick only once since my own Dad passed in 2003, he asked how my Mom was and was still missing Pat. My prayers for you. Thoughts of you all come every now and then and memories of many years ago.
