Samantha. I am one of Chase's sisters. I know of you. If you email me at and confirm your identity by telling me your occupation, I will put you in touch with Ben and Luke.

9/28/16: On the third anniversary of your passing into eternal life, I do so wonder how it is going for you. 'How are you' seems like a silly question for heaven. It is just that 'perfectly fine always' is so hard for us to imagine. Well, you know how things are going here for all of us, I imagine, so no point in belaboring things. Perhaps you would like to share how things are where you are? That could be most helpful. I'm listening. Nancy White

I just discovered that Charles has passed. I would greatly appreciate it if Benjamin or Lucas would contact me.

My name is Cindy, I am Chases' second wife. So funny because we got married four years after we were together. Chase and I shared many adventures in our time together; 7 years together and forever dear friends.
Chase was my Sampson, my Godsend. I prayed to God to send me someone strong and funny. We hit it off really well right away. Two people in this world needing to be loved.
I first heard of Chase while he was

chase was always full of fun for us . he stopped by often upon returning out west. one of my favorite memories of chase was when he had cindy and her son with him. he was floating on the pool in our back yard. the lounger he picked happened to have cup holders in it so he thought it would be very appropriate for me to bring him something to drink. although it was more for being able to put

Just remembering being 13 or 14 years old. My dad was driving to work about 2 hours every day. Our house had one way windows, so I could see him coming home. I would hide behind the door and yell "HEY" when he walked in, and scare him senseless. I did it so often he started catching on to my game. I then started tricking him, and hiding other places, and it became so amusing to both of us because

"Do Not Stand At My Grave and Weep"

Do not stand at my grave and weep
I am not there. I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow.
I am the diamond glints on snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain.
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awaken in the morning's hush
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry;
I am not there. I did not die.

Part 2 of 2: I remember Chase's courage in this struggle to regain his health and establish his life when he returned to California. He never had a pity party, before or after the cancer. He never wondered how this could be happening to him. With the patience of Job, he dealt with everything that came up. He said he rarely had a day when he felt down. He said he suspected that something might be wrong him that allowed

Part 1: I am 8 years older than Chase, so he was only 10 when I left home. I remember that as a kid, Chase seemed to lack a fear of consequences, unlike most of his sisters who had a healthy respect for the consequences. Most of his sisters marched to the drum of the importance of the work-to- be-done and bought into that family philosophy; but not Chase. To Chase, WORK was not THE important thing in life. There
