Terry, Cindy,Jordan,Courtney,Annalee,Mrs. Chiddister: My thoughts are with you during the loss of Mr. Chiddister. I know that he will be greatly missed by many. Losing a husband, father, grandfather is never easy. But it does give you peace knowing that he is no longer suffering and in pain. With every penny you find, every raindrop that comes down and every sun that rises and sets. Know that your angel is sending you a message of love. Big hug to my sweet Annalee.

Picture which we can see here is not of an ordinary man infact he was a legend and govt. officer who served the country for several years of his life. He died in the age of 81 and more details about college application essay and his service and life are also given here which can help us to know more about his life. I suggest everyone to read it once for an inspiration to achieve goals.
