We have so many cherished memories of our dear friend, Chappy. He loved going to Bible study (New Creation) and loved his donuts. His driver drove him down to Muncie for a donut once. He loved his donuts. We took him so many places and built so many fond memories. He got a parking ticket when his Hummer was on the street for too long a period of time. We took him downtown and we informed them that he was in the hospital and couldn't move it; therefore, the charges. He was ready to pay for it and we spoke up on his behalf. A funny time was when his Hummer tire was being fixed at Sears and Edgar and his driver Jack walked down and had an expensive cup of coffee!!! They always laughed about it! There are so many memories, it's hard to single out the most special, because they were all special to us. Love & miss ya, Jack & Barbara
