About Chase...

Chase was born on 6-12-90, along with his identical twin, Chad. Chase was very caring, loving, polite and never said anything bad about anyone. He loved animals and had such a soft heart. Chase was an avid skateboarder which he started at a very young age. He won many competitions. He could love without hesitation, and bring a rainbow to any storm. In fact, a beautiful rainbow appeared just after we were leaving his gravesite the day he was buried. He always had a smile on his face and was a real jokester always making people laugh. He is Forever 24. We miss you, Chase, especially Chad. You both were so close and identical and best friends. Until we meet again in Heaven, we will always love you and never forget what a wonderful young man you were; taken from us too soon. Forever in our Hearts, Mom & Chad ❤️❤️❤️

I will always cherish this picture my twin sons, Chad & Chase, with my grandfather, Lamon T. Queen. The tomato was shaped like a rubber duck,
he was showing it to the boys.

We Do Not Need A Special Day

We do not need a special day
To bring you to our minds
The days we do not think of you
Are very hard to find

Each morning when we awake
We know that you are gone
And no one knows the heartache
As we try to carry on

Our hearts still ache with sadness
And secret tears still flow
What it meant to lose you
No one will ever know
Our thoughts are always with you
Your place no one can fill
In life we loved you dearly
In death we love you still

There will always be a heartache
And often a silent tear
But always a precious memory
Of the days when you were here

If tears could build a staircase
And heartaches make a lane
We'd walk the path to Heaven
And bring you home again

We hold you close, within our hearts
And there you will remain
To walk with us throughout our lives
Until we meet again

Our family chain is broken now
And nothing seems the same
But as God calls us one by one
The chain will link again.

Leroy had his hands full!

Chase and Chad loved to fish. Those fish were from some ol'pond out in a field around Harrison.


I'm still here, though you don't see.
I'm right by your side each night and day
and within your heart I long to stay.
My body is gone but I'm always near.
I'm everything you feel, see or hear.

My spirit is free, but I'll never depart.
As long as you keep me alive in your heart.
I'll never wander out of your sight,
I'm the brightest star on a summer night.

I'll never be beyond your reach.
I'm the warm moist sand when your at the beach.
I'm the colorful leaves when fall comes around
and the pure white snow that blankets the ground.
I'm the beautiful flowers of which your so fond,
the cool clear water in a quiet pond.

I'm the first bright blossom you'll see in the spring,
The first warm raindrop that April will bring.
I'm the first ray of light when the sun starts to shine
and you'll see that the face in the moon is mine.
When you start thinking there's no one to love you,
you can talk to me through the Lord above you.

I'll whisper the answer through the leaves on the trees
and you'll feel my presence in the soft summer breeze.
I'm the hot salty tears that flow when you weep,
and the beautiful dreams that come while you sleep.
I'm the smile you see on a baby's face.
Just look for me Mom, I'M EVERYPLACE!!!

My sweet boys at 15 years old. Chase is in all blue; Chad has the red boxers.

If You Could See Me Now

I know that you are heartbroken
and sad that I am gone.
But I am in Heaven now, Momma,
and I've never once been left alone.

Oh I wish you could see me now.
Heaven is a beautiful place to be.
Jesus is the light that shines here.
And He walks daily with me.

Oh, the skies are never gray here.
And it never ever rains.
And, although I know you still feel it...
Up here, there is no pain.

Angels are always singing for me.
Their voices are beautiful and clear.
I am in the presence of loved ones.
And Momma, I haven't seen one tear!

I know that you are hurting for me.
And I can't make your pain disappear.
But if you could see me now, you'd know
I am happy in Heaven
and I still love you from here!

As You Hold Me Close In Memory
Even though we are apart
My Spirit will live on,
There, within your heart…
I am with you always
When you lean on trusted friends
And their caring hugs enfold you,
Within their loving arms
I'll be there to hold you…
I am with you always

And beyond the far horizon,
When we'll be together
Where love will be eternal
And life will last forever
I am with you always

Those we love remain with us
for love itself lives on.
Cherished memories never fade,
because one loved is gone.
Those we love can never be,
more than a thought apart,
for as long as there is a memory,
they live on in our heart.

Christopher Chase Raymond, You'll forever have a place in my heart. Please watch over me. Be my guardian angel. I love and miss you more than you'll ever know. Love always, Lauren

When you remember me, it means that
you have carried something of who I am with you,
that I have left some mark on who I am on who you are.
It means that you can summon me back to your mind
even though countless years and miles may stand between us.
It means that if we meet again, you will know me,
and hear my voice and speak to me in your heart.
For as long as you remember me, I am never entirely lost.
~Frederick Buechner

Chase posted this on Facebook three weeks before he passed away.


And I will light a candle for you
to shadow all the darkness and bless the times we knew
Like a beacon in the night the flame will burn bright
and guide us on our way
Oh today I light a candle for you.

Seasons come and go and I'm weary from the change
Keep on moving on -- you know it's not the same
And when I'm walking all alone
Do you hear me call your name?
Do you hear me sing the songs we used to sing?

And I will light a candle for you...

You filled my life with wonder -- touched me with surprise
Always saw that something special deep within your eyes
And through the good times and the bad
We carried on with pride
I hold on to the love and life we knew

And I will light a candle for you...
Oh today I light a candle for you.
