You have been our thoughts and prayers for a very long time now. I truly don’t know how you get past losing a child, but I know you are a remarkable person and you will go on. We are always only a phone call away. We didn’t have the privilege of knowing Chad, but if he was like his Mother, it would have been our honor. Mat God bless and keep you & your family in your hour of need.

Hollie Meyer - Oct 2, 2012

Dani, Jayson, and Brayden: your dad will be watching over you, he won’t miss a single game, dance, or wedding that may be in your future. He will be right there by your side. Smiling and bragging ” those are my kids!” One day you will be reunited and can sit back and share stories once again. Until then keep living like there’s no tomorrow, enjoy life and do the best you can to make him proud! It won’t always be easy but that’s when you call one your friends and family to get you through. If you guys need anything always remember Uncle Ryan and I are here for you.
