In Memory of Dad

We lost Mark's Dad last night. Lt. Col. Chester R. Mead, Ret. passed of natural causes at home. He was born December 28th, 1921. He served our country in World War II, Korea and Vietnam. He was a pilot and loved to fly, even after retiring from the military. He is survived by his wife Dorothy and children, Rob, Mark, Kristan and Bruce.

I am at a loss for words after losing Kathryn, Mark's Sister just two weeks ago. Dad, thank you for welcoming me into your family in 1993. I'll always love you and hope that Kath, Freddie, Mimi and everyone else you loved helped welcome you to a better place. I hope to see you again one day.
