    Chester, I met you through your sister, Sandy after high school & called you Butch.. Took me a while to start calling you Chester.. Sister Sandy & I had a party & introduced you to Sandy, who is one of my best friends & became your wife.. The four of us bought a pop up camper to share & then our journey began with many wonderful camping trips.. Pop up, to travel trailer to motorhome. We have so many wonderful memories of our trips together.. The laughs, the card games & so many fun things.. Don & I miss you, my friend.. But one day we will all be together...Love you and we know you are at peace! Love, Don & Carol

    Just thinking of you and all the great times we have had together over the years. I remember when we first met Irv always left the water hose out and you always rolled it up and said to me this is how to put a hose away. You always had a way of putting a smile on my face when you were around me. It is hard to believe that you and Sandy came in my life as my family 17 years ago. I sure was glad you didn't drowned in the rainbow river. What fun that weekend was :-). The good times and the fun we have shared over the years are too many to list here .You have always been one of my favorite people. We love you so much and please know you will always be in our hearts. Love Irv and Susie
