The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.
He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.
He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake.
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.

My condolences.

Cherishing all the wonderful times while you worked at the Bedford Elks. May you continue to grow from grace to grace in the presence of the One who created you. I'll probably see you soon and look forward to that day. Peace be with you and those you leave behind.

I did not know Chance but from what I have read he was a very special kid. I lost my 16 year old daughter in a car accident almost 9 months ago. I am still trying to get through each day but have certainly learned a lot about our universe since my precious little one left this physical earth. Please keep your arms tight around the other children and grieve however you need to. Allow your family and friends to comfort you in any way. We have gone to a couple of mediums such as the Long Island Medium (Theresa Caputo) who have all amazed us with unbelievably accurate words they conveyed from our sweet Kally. Please be open to things like this as they can be extremely healing. I have provided my email if you ever need a shoulder and I am also on facebook.(Kris Nesbitt Graham). I have two other heartbroken teenagers and we have all felt as if our world has ended but we are remembering and talking about her each day and we do get many signs that she is with us which certainly helps us get through the long days. I am so sorry for the loss of your sweet son. I have asked my beautiful angel to find and comfort Chance in heaven and will be praying for your family. Look to the sun, moon, clouds and stars and someday you will feel comfort.

Much love, Kristin

I met Chance last semester in a theatre class we had together. We often worked together during our warm-ups for today. I can always remember that he made me smile and was naturally funny. My deepest condolences to your family.

I didn't meet Chance until last semester, because I was a year ahead of him in our program. But we had a theatre class together. He was always very kind, and often very funny. He will be greatly missed by the nursing community at IUP. I am so sorry for your loss.
