    My deepest condolences to friends and family. We got to know Mr. Chase through his son Doug and had many good times with him. He was always quick to smile during a visit and it was always nice to hear him laugh. I’ll miss stopping by and seeing him in his chair or sitting out front and he’ll be missed at our get togethers. I was glad to have had the opportunity to know him.

    Mac was a close cousin and dear friend. He and Peggy welcomed me to Ft. Bragg when I was a young Army Lieutenant. I had many wonderful Sunday’s in their company and certainly enjoyed Peggy’s fine cooking! Mac stood with my brothers as a member of the wedding party when Judy and I were married, not long after Douglas’ birth. He will be missed by all of us. Randal and Judy Jones and family.

    Mr. Chase was a very good friend for my son Jameson. I will always appreciate the time that they spent hanging out together: watching the news, going out to eat and picking on each other. He made a big impact in Jamey’s life and we will always remember him as family.

    Doug was married to my sister Peggy. I admired how he loved her and treated her with so much respect. He was always so good to her, and to all our family. He was such a giving person., and was always there ready to help us out in any situation that come up. Doug was always so appreciative of anything that we did for him even with the smallest things,
    Douglas was there to help him in every way, and did a wonderful job Thank the Lord they had raised a son that had so much love and care for his parents. He knew how to handle the care that Doug needed.I know he is going to miss him very much, but he is also going to be at peace knowing that his Dad is at peace. We will miss him, but so glad he is with Peggy now. Thank you Doug for being such a caring person.

    Mr. Chase was one of “our gang.” We all enjoyed his company when we got together. I got a kick out of him when he called me “shug” sugar. We had political, religious and life conversations together. He was a man of his convictions for certain. He would drop anything to help someone out. I will miss him and send my deepest condolences to our friend Doug and family. Rest In Peace Mr. C.
