    Mrs. Carter & Silvia, I am so sorry to hear of Chips passing. My sister Barbara let me know yesterday. Growing up with and attending school with both Alisha and Chip are memories i cherish still today, i can close my eyes and see them just like they happened yesterday. The messes we got into ,the pranks Chip played on us at your house are the memories i will keep tucked foundly away in my heart forever. I can still remember the last time I saw the four of you together; it was like old home week for me, even thou its been more than 30 years now. I love you all, and will be praying for the peace and solice you need at this time.
