John & Dorothy & families, we are so sorry for the loss of your brother. Chester was always so nice & had a smile on his face every time we saw him. He made the circus so much fun for our grandsons every time we saw him there. Sending hugs & prayers to all of you. Debby & Bill send their deepest sympathy as well.

We at Kelly’s will miss talking to Chet and his brother. Every time I asked Chet how he was doing he always said “shitty, but thanks for asking.” He will be missed as a customer and friendly face. May God bless everyone who is mouring. Until we meet again, Amen.
