Condolences to Chesters family and close friends

Just want you folks to know that I hold you in my thoughts and prayers during this time of loss. I didn’t get to know Chester, but my late wife Maureen Jarrell often spoke of him fondly. Had I been fortunate enough to have gotten to know him I know we would have been fast friends. Meredith Barkley


So sorry for your loss Tony!

My prayers are with you and your family as you go through this difficult time. May God give you comfort and peace.
