In times like these, the perfect words are hard to find. Although Chase was a part of our classroom for only a short time, he made a big impact on those around him. Memories of Chase include his friendly smile when he walked in the door and greeted everyone, the way he laughed when he was playing games at recess, his use of everyday manners when talking with others, the encouragement that he gave to peers, his desire to develop friendships with those around him, and his offers or requests for hugs before leaving to go home each night. May the memories of Chase encourage and support you through this difficult time. Thank you for sharing your nephew, son, and brother with us.

All my love Chase. You're with God and someday we will all be reunited. I will always remember your tin soldier salutes, and emphatic imitation yes, sir Uncle Rick, with your chin tucked in at attention, and your short hair cut. Everyday I find little reminders of you in my house. You may be gone; but, you will never be forgotten. Love you little soldier! Uncle Rick
