I'm sorry to hear about your famiy's loss. Please take comfort in God's Word. Acts 24:15 asures us that "there is going to be a resurrection." We look forward to a time when death, mourning, and tears will be wiped away forever. May your warm memories of Chester and the hope of the resurrection comfort you.
