Lisa & family we are so very sorry about Chester. He was such a wonderful funny guy with this huge personality. He always had that sly grin on his face making you wonder what he was going to say or do. We will miss that and all of the other things that Chester was to us, especially the friendship that we shared. Rest easy big guy and we will see you on the other side.
