    Our Hearts go out to Chip's family and our prayers will be with you in the months and years coming, your happy memories will help you go through this hardship in your life. Thank you for being such a good friend to me Chip while I was growing up. Without my father and brothers being around you sure did fill those shoes. I know life got harder for us all, but everything you did for me taught me a lot of lessons and paths that I should take. My Mom and I will miss you very much, say hi to Anthony when you see him. Chip I will always thank you for being there for Eric, I can't say enough good things your caring for him and spending time with him will always show in the person he has become. I will miss you!! Love Eric and Marla Hubbard
