We were deeply saddened to hear about Chad. We acknowledge that now there are no words we can share that will ease the pain caused by such a loss. We do however wish to share our feelings in the hope it can comfort, as the days pass, and you are left to pick up the pieces of your lives. We haven't been where we could know Chad but
Remember Adam telling us when they returned that Chad carried a bible around while they were there. There had to be a reason for that. Possibly, only God knows why.
In reality, the Bible is the only place for answers. We can't know why a young person is taken but must believe Chad had found peace from the Word the carried.
As God loved Chad, He loves each and every person who feels grief. He gave His only Son so He knows grief. The peace and acceptance of this can only come from inner faith that comes from knowing the Father. Acts 2:21 Tells us "And it shall come to pass that whoever calls on the name of The Lord shall be saved." May God's comfort and peace rest on all.
Know that ya'll are in our prayers down in Mississippi. Love ya

Hearing of Chad's passing brought sadness to my heart. As Chad's second grade teacher, I can remember how dear he was as a student. He worked so hard to do his best. He was so full of fun and admired by his friends. Please accept my deepest sympathy as you mourn his passing. May God give you peace and comfort. Cherish the good memories he leaves now.

Our deepest Sympathy to Chad's family from all of us at Davis Landscape, LTD. He was an awesome young man who touched many lives in his bashful, shy way. Patty and I loved his visits to the office and he could always make us smile.
