I've only talked to Chad a few times. I work at Nationwide. But he was so energetic each time, just paying his bill. I asked him about his tattoos and he gave me the name and phone number of the artist. And through the small interactions I've had with him, I know his family will be missing the bright light that effortlessly radiated from him.

Almost all of my memories of growing up have him in them. We were joined at the hip for more years than either of us could count.
