  2. Dear david,Dan,and John,
    I haven’t seen any of you in many years,and i’m sorry for that,but I’m still here offering you my condolences. I don’t think I ever heard an angry word from your dad’s mouth since I met David when we were five yeas old. I’ve often thought about all of you over the years including your mom and dad.They were just made for each other. I’m only sorry I didn’t see more of them and of you over the years. I wish you all all the best and aqnd,believe me,I think of you often. I know it’s hard when a parent passes as I lost both of mine before I really knew them. I miss them as you must miss yours. Your dad was always funny,and could make me feel welcome and accepted no matter how much of a brat I could be sometimes. That also goes for your mother who always treated me as if i were hwe fourth son. I’ll miss them. Take care brother David.

  3. Dear Dan, David, John and family,
    We were so sorry to hear about your Dad’s passing. As I’ve said by email, he was a wonderful man who always had a big smile and a kind word. I know I speak for my siblings: Charles, Tommy, and Mary Sue, when I say that all of us loved him. We know that at some point, we’ll look forward to a wonderful reunion in Heaven, but in the meantime we’ll miss our Uncle Al, along with so many of our other good family members who have gone before us.

  4. Dear Dan, David and John and families,
    Your parents were two of the sweetest people I had the honor of knowing. My prayers are with you all during this time.

  5. I am so sorry for your loss. I grew up next door to the Chenoweth’s and my parents always said what great neighbors the Chenoweth’s were. Mr. C always had that smile on his face. He always asked about us kids and how we were. He would do anything to help others. No words can ease the loss, but I hope that you find comfort in the memories you have and strength in the love you shared. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family at this difficult time.

  6. Gail and Milly: Thanks for your kind words. I have a picutre of your dad from WWII that my dad has had all these years. I hope you can make it to the funeral service and I’ll bring that picture with me to give to you.

  7. Barb, thank you so much. My mom and your mom were best of friends for so many years. Now the whole gang is together again!

  8. Dear Family:
    So Sorry to hear about your father. He and your mother were wonderful people. Such dear friends to my parents, Edmond (Sonny) and Shirley Pfalmer. I know how difficult it is to lose your parents. I am thinking of your family during this difficult time.

  9. What a remarkable man. He was my fathers best friend, from their childhood in Trinidad extending and spanning over generations. My dad simply called him “Chinny”. And loved him like a brother. For me, I will never forget his amazing smile and laugh. Because he loved and lived his life with such gusto! And loved and cherished his family so dearly. Just hold those smiles closely to your hearts as you remember this one-of-a-kind gentleman. On behalf of my mother, Mildred, and myself, we wish the family peace in knowing “Chinny” is smiling again.
