I attended high school with Chad and had the pleasure of his company on a few occasions our last few years of high school. I have always had fond memories of the little time that we spent together.
To his family I wish to send the most heart felt condolences.

Dear Kathy and Daryl:
I know it has been along time since we have been in touch. But I want you to know that at a very difficult time in your life that my thoughts and prayers are with you. Chad was a great kid and always full of smiles. May God be with you and your family.

Dear Kathy, Daryl, Mark, Jim and Tanya,
Our hearts are aching for all of you right now. Even though we have only seen Chad occasionally over the past several years, we loved him very much as we do all of you. He was such a special, loving person. The times we did have an opportunity to see him, he always greeted us with his loving spirit. My son Brad absolutely adored Chad when they got to spend time together at Grandma
Dear Kathy, Daryl, Mark, Jim and Tanya,
Our hearts are aching for all of you right now. Even though we have only seen Chad occasionally over the past several years, we loved him very much as we do all of you. He was such a special, loving person. The times we did have an opportunity to see him, he always greeted us with his loving spirit. My son Brad absolutely adored Chad when they got to spend time together at Grandma Lois' funeral. Brad was 9 and Chad would have been in his early 20's at the time. They both shared the love of basketball and bonded instantly. I could tell at the time that Chad had a special way with children. The last time I saw Chad was at the Tree of Memories service at Johnson County Memorial Gardens in December 2005. He brought Caleb to hang ornaments for family members who have gone before us. He arrived late and seemed sad and yet he was very sweet and came up and gave me a big hug at the reception. He said he really wanted to come by our family Christmas celebration but evidently something came up and he wasn't able to make it. Even though he couldn't come, he was always with us in spirit. These are just a few of my more recent memories but there are many others, particularly of he and David growing up together. On behalf of the entire Bailey clan, we want you to know that we are all grieving with you and share your deep sadness. Chad will remain in our hearts forever.

I hadn't seen Chad often in the past several years, but no matter how much time passed he always greeted me with a big hug and warm words. He cared truly and deeply about others - especially his kids, and that was apparent. You'll live on in many, many fond memories. We'll miss you Chad. Rest in peace, bro. Love, Cory
