We wonder why God would do something like this. We think God did this for God. He wanted Chip with Him, in a more peaceful place, a place without stress and worries, a place that is much better than this world.

Chip found his work at the animal shelter so rewarding, in lieu of flowers we are requesting donations in Chip’s name to be sent to the S.P.C.A. of your choice or Blue Ridge Wildlife Refuge, P.O. Box 326 Millwood, VA 22646.
