Dear Steve, Tim, Dave, and Madden. We were so sorry to hear of your dads passing. I know you remember as well as I do all the days riding motorcycles. Your dad helped us work on them and rode with us. I remember all of us playing ball at Albert St. Stadium. I remember your dad being very nice to all of us. I saw him at Bob Evans last year and talked with him for a few minutes. He was just like he was when we were kids. We are thinking of you at this tough time. We have lost another good one.

A wonderful man of God, I am sure he is with our Heavenly Father experiencing great joy! I have so many warm memories of church services and he baptized me, he was such a good man! My deepest sympathies to the Chapman family.
