    Ricky and Tanya,

    Please know that I am praying for you and your families. I have no words to express the sorrow that I feel for you both. I only know that I wish I had a magic wand to take the horror away that you are experiencing. Please know that you both continue to be in my thoughts.

    To all of Chad’s family and friends,

    We are so sorry we couldn’t be with you tonight to pay our respects to Chad. We both thought so much of him back in middle school and during the early days of Shenandoah County Lacrosse. Chad made a great impression that year and he will forever be in our hearts.
