Dear Betty, Rod and Brady. My heart is breaking. I pray our Lord will give each of you comfort and peace. I'll remember Chet with his big smile and twinkle in his eyes. Chuck thought the world of Chet and enjoyed their conversations. We both always got big smiles on our faces when we remembered Chet's BIG BOWL of ice cream served on one of our trips. All my love, Peggy Erskine
