Memories Timeline


  1. Marsha, Charles, Elese, Dawn,Tammy and extended Family,
    Mother and I were stunned to learn of Chet’s passing. Such a sweet child and such a fine young man. As neighbors we grew up together to become family.

    I fondly look back to when he was just a little boy. How he loved Mother’s biscuits or biscuits and gravy. What giggles we shared when he would come over because ‘Mama had sent him after one of Ruby’s biscuits.’ (Charles and Marsha had no idea.). We know your hearts are broken yet what peace Jesus provides us in knowing we will see Chet again. We love you. May you rest in Christ loving arms in the coming days.
