  1. When our hearts are broken, no words can really reach us, I hope you felt our love, our compassion and our caring thoughts in our hugs and kisses and in our laughter in our private moments. Our family, the Chase’s, will always be there to rally with you and around you. May your tears turn to smiles and laughter as you remember your husband and father and poppy as the days continue on, as you remember days gone by.

    Sue & Family:
    I have had the privilege to know Craig since Wilson High school & Sue since about 1970 or so. We we’re neighbors in the Shore & in Orange County too. We partied & cursed around for many of our younger years together. I personally know that he loved you deeply & for life; this one & the next. I am glad that my wife also had a chance to know him & your family while having dinner and playing cards at your Huntington Beach home.
    I had driven past your old home at the time of Craig’s passing and I felt something had happen to him or was going to. It was a true & deep feeling that had disturbed me. He might have been in that area & we connected together.
    May your family bring you the strength & love to get you through the rest of your life with out your Craig.
    Always: Love – Kirk Russell
