If you follow the link posted for the obituary, you have the option of posting in the online guest book. You may have to plunk in your zipcode, year of birth, and click which gender to enter, but it accepts anything there.

Also, if there is agreement with your suggestion, I'd be more than happy to print out the thread and present it.

I'll be at the (6pm-8pm) visitation tonight at the funeral home and the 7pm-9pm tomorrow night. Archon you're the only one I know of who said you planned on trying to attend the funeral. I still appreciate everyone'* prayers for his family. You are all really a great group of people! Thank you!

Yes, I'm going to try to make the visitation tonight. If that doesn't work out, I plan on tomorrows. I have the print out of this thread, also.

Edit - Also, plan on attending the funeral.

I made an appearance at the funeral home tonight, and tried to represent everyone the best that I could. I'm really not very good at this stuff.

Melissa, and Chad'* Mom and Dad were doing reasonably well, all things considered. I spoke with Chad'* mom for a short time, conveying our sympathies to her. I told her that Chad was a cherished member of the Bonneville Club. She said that tomorrow, she wants to get Chad'* car out of the garage, clean it up, and park it in front of the funeral home. She added that the garage is quite narrow, and would have to be careful driving it out, or Chad would be upset. I gave her a printed copy of this thread, that I had put into a binder. She took it, and clutched it to her chest. I think that she really liked receiving it. I did not get the opportunity to talk to his dad.

I took the liberty of borrowing Haro'* artwork for the cover that I made for it. Haro - I hope that you don't mind. Pat, I also borrowed the picture of Chad that you posted....how most of us will remember him. Not just as a soldier, but as Chad Vollmer.

This is what I made up.



This is the cover of the memorial card.



and what was inside.



And the donation envelope.

It was a closed flag draped coffin, watched over by the honor guards. I gave Chad our good-byes.
