    You hear about these things all the time, but I just learned that that man was a dear friend and client of mine. I can still see his infectuous smile. I am so sad but even more so for his beautiful family and sad for this world as it has lost one of its finest.
    Chip, I will miss you very much. But I know EXACTLY where you are and I will see you again someday, Until then, my friend . . .

    This is extremely sad news all the way in California. Chip was an outstanding man and human being whos life was centered in Christ. He walked the talk and touch my life in a huge way when he opened his home when I had no where to go. He is truly my dear friend who will be missed beyond measure. I only hope that I can touch lives and make a difference like Chip before my time expires.

    Chip, I miss you. If only I had known the last time I talked with you that it would be the last time, I would have let you know how much I appreciate your kindness, your calming spirit and your wisdom. I appreciate all we were able to accomplish together as co-workers and I feel deeply hurt that our friendship is at an abrupt end. I will keep your family in my prayers, I will keep your memory close to my heart and may the Most High bless your soul and may you forever be at peace….Gail

We won so many trophy’s together and he won the biggest prize which was his wife for many years Mary(NUGE)who was first my girlfriend before Chip won her over:) I LOVE YA MAAN!
