“Dale, Kim and Brett: This is so coincidental that I learned of your dad's death today. I was actually looking for Chick's obituary. As I was going through some files this morning, I found the organ recovery article"To Remember Me" that was read at Chick's funeral. Your mother sent me a copy shortly after. Your mom and dad always welcomed us kids as we and Chick wandered around the neighborhood trying to get a ball game up. He was a good role model for us Clintonites. I'm sorry for your loss.”
My sincere condolences to his dear family. He will surely be missed. Prayers for comfort and love as you cherish your memories.

Much love....
My sympathy is with the family. I remember Mr. Williams who was always friendly and smiling. I also remember him with Ms. Delores and what fun they did have. I'm happy they will be together again.
