My friend and I visited Chester twice a month at Hillside Acres. He was always a blessing to us, often dominating the talking, often talking about the Lord. While I am sad that he has went ahead, I know that Chester is in a better place and that I will get to see him again in heaven.

I had the pleasure of meeting Chester at Discount Drug Mart in Willard where I work as a pharmacy technician. He was one of the nicest sweetest men I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. I loved when he would call the pharmacy and we had time to chat. I am so sorry for your loss. God received a very special angel on wednesday.
