So very sorry to hear of your loss. Chet and Rose were dear friends of my husband and me from my hospice days. We went out to dinner and concerts together. Rose has been lovingly missed all these years. Praying for your whole family and hoping that memories of happy times together will bring you all comfort and peace.

So many wonderful memories of Grandpa Chet and the whole family. So thankful to have known and been “adopted” by the family. He will be missed. I will never forget the fun days splashing in the pool and sitting on the patio eating lemon cookies! I am guessing there is quite a morning coffee happening with Aunt Linda, Grandma Rosie and Grandpa Chet!❤️ My love and sympathy to all of you!

Family.... After having Linda in my life for many years and experiencing her friendship and love, I sure wish I would have had the chance to meet Chester. He surely must have been a man worth knowing and experiencing often! Please know that all of you are in my prayers and thoughts. God bless and be with you all as you grieve.
