Joyce, Dave, Amy, Jason, Conner, & Alyssa, Tom, Drew, and I know we haven't seen you all lately, life gets busy - especially with grandkids- but when we did, we were always glad to see you guys. Chad always greeted us with a big grin, I don't think he knew a stranger. As it does for you, this bring back so many fun memories of playing cards - way back when and of course, the wild times during deer season especially @ the cabin. It also brings back fond memories of Amy working for us at the Inn, with her bright smile and contagious laugh. Drew is going to especially miss swapping trapping stories with Chad, as that is kind of a lost art that not too many people appreciate anymore. I cannot imagine how you all must feel. I don't know what to say except that your family is in our thoughts and prayers and we will treasure the memories of Chad in our hearts forever. Tom, Melody, Drew, and Ava Buersmeyer
