We were saddened to learn of the loss of this kind, gentle soul. We met Chester through the Forest Oaks Civic Assoc. He was a dear friend and customer of ours. I am so sorry we didn't know he was ill or we would have visited him often. Please accept our heart felt condolences. Heaven has gained an angel whose shoes on earth will be hard to fill.

The death of someone we love is one of the most painful losses a person can experience. Jesus demonstrated, when on earth, his ability to bring Charles and others back to life at John 11:11-14. May these scriptures bring you comfort until that time arrives.
