Dear Leslie, Huntsman Family, and all those who knew and loved Chad. I am so sorry for your loss. I didn't know Chad personally very well, but I am very close with his cousin Danie. I remember being at Danie's house the day Chad and Leslie came home from their honey moon, they were a beautiful couple and I remember listening to them tell us stories about their honeymoon, and I thought it sounded so fabulous and romantic. I remember seeing some of their wedding pictures, Danie and I were 19 at the time, and we thought Leslie was the most beautiful bride. I know that mourning the loss of a loved one is something so personal that each one of us cannot begin to understand how another person is feeling. I know no words, or songs or poems can take away that raw ache in your chest. So the only thing I feel I can offer at this time is that I know Heavenly Father embraced Chad with open arms and I know he is loved in heaven and here on this earth. I am so sorry for each one of you. Sending love and peace and solace that you may find in his memories and in his love for you. Amanda hugs to you.

Steve, Mary, Amanda, Kelly, I am so sorry for the pain you are going through. You are in my thoughts and prayers. I always felt like the honorary member of the Terry family since my sister had to bring me with her everywhere. I had the pleasure of growing up with all of the cousins as if they were my own. Chad had such a kind heart. His presence will be missed but his legacy lives on in the beautiful children he has. Leslie, please know you are in my thoughts and prayers, I know Chad will be watching over you and protecting you all. Much love to you all.
