. . . . . . .

Thank you to all those who have been commenting and emailing. Your thoughts and wishes and prayers make a huge difference.

Chip's dad passed away on Friday evening. He was surrounded by his family. We will miss him terribly: his love, his kindness, his sense of humor, his patience, his service, his great love for God and Jesus Christ.

We know we'll be seeing him again - and for this we are profoundly grateful.

Words are hard to come by in certain situations. Just remember that you are surrounded by people that love you.

he was such a great man - the world is a better place because of him. i remember one time when my abi was little ... he came to my parents house in his nice red convertible ... (can't remember the name of it) and abi picked up a rock and hit his car with it! AAAHHHH! dan had been telling me that i couldn't have it when he died cuz he was going to be buried with it! sounds like he changed his mind ... do you think he'd want me to have that car now?! :) i am so glad to have known him and i know i'll be seeing him again! hang in there Chip - i love you!
