Default Vollmer Family Extends Gratitude to Bonneville Club

To the Bonneville Club- Local, Regional and National,

From the family of Sgt. Chad J. Vollmer, we would like to extend our personal gratitude to the entire Bonneville Club for their expression of sympathy and rememberance for our beloved and honored son. We know he had many friends in the club and that was certainly evident from the outpouring of condolences expressed to the family by the Bonneville Club members. He will remain in our cherished memories and prayers forever.

May God Bless you all and thank you on behalf of our fallen son Sgt. Chad J. Vollmer.

Many, here, were deeply affected and the outpouring of support and caring was evident in the ovewhelming response of club members.

Chad will forever be a part of this special extended family and will always be remembered with the utmost admiration and respect.

Vollmer Family:

i too can only tell you what others have and will no doubtedly say, we will miss chad, you are all in our thoughts and prayers, for chad to be able to do what he did so selflessly, to me, means that you as a family helped mold him into the man he will always be remembered as, and that in my opinion, makes you all just as much of heroes as Chad.

God bless you,

Matt

We're not done with our effort by any means. More work is being done to help express our feelings and sympathy for the family and friends. It'* hard to know what to do for the survivors in many cases, so we do what seems best.

We want to make sure Chad knows what he meant to us, and know that he understands how much he meant to his family. Many of us carry memorial ribbons on our cars, but this is just the beginning.

Dad, that'* Chad'* car on the upper right portion of each Forum page. I don't think there'* a truly fitting tribute that could do what everyone wants, ease any pain, or make anything better, but I can assure you that we will NEVER forget.

Thank you for taking the time to come here, to Chad'* other house, and share your thoughts and thanks with us. That was a truly touching gesture.

Thank you Chad'* dad!! We have been deeply affected by the loss also. I have just recently received my decal and it is on my car. It is the only decal I've allowed on my car but Chad was family and he will be missed by many! It is so hard to fathom the sacrifice he made for so many people.

I am truly honored that you joined and sent us this message. Even though I really never got to meet Chad, I talked to him a little bit and it felt almost like losing a brother. He will be dearly missed and my most sincere condolences go to you and the rest of your family. I have not yet recieved my decal, but as soon as I get it, I will put it on my car, in Chad'* honor.
