My condolences and prayers to the Chatters family. Mr Chatters was my uncle Arbere Swan friend and later would become friends with my Dad. Aubrey Sr. and my dad, Carl Swan, bonded because they both enjoyed people and enjoyed sharing stories surrounding their sons that attended Purdue. I learn more about Chatters jr. through conversations our father than through attending Purdue with Chatters. I owe my friendship with Jr. To Chatters Sr. That's a friendship worth having
