Our deepest sympathy to Shirley, David and family. I worked with Chester at the Dallas County Sheriff's Department in the late 1980's and we car pooled together. We became great friends with him and Shirley. We were so saddened to hear of his passing but rest at ease now knowing he's in God's hands and finally free of sickness and pain. Rest in peace my friend. Don & Judie Smith
