My sincere condolences to the family and friends of Anthony Joseph Chester. We are but a glimmer of a twinkling of a star, our time compared to that that has been and will be is lost in a blink. It is so future generations will know that among all, there were few who dared step where your departed loved one tread. Few still willing to sacraifice last breath so that another might taste liberty. I am proud to stand among those who did, and would, to honor your departed. Although we may have never met, we are as family, united and bonded through such connection. I am honored to have you as such.

I send my sincere condolences to the family and friends of Anthony Joseph Chester. May the Lord comfort you in the difficult days ahead.
We’ve lost yet another member of The Greatest Generation…

Godspeed Sir…

Those we love remain with us, for love itself lives on.
Cherished memories never fade because a loved one’s gone.
Those we love can never be more than a thought apart,
for as long as there is memory, they live on in our hearts.
