Condolences. You are in our thoughts and prayers.
Thank you for your service to this country ! We were talking about a couple of times you came down and one time going to plow days. It was great listening to you talking about many of the tractors and cars that were at the show in field. My sister and her husband also enjoyed that time with you. God bless you Chester, and may you rest in peace !
