Sorry to hear about the loss, If there is anything i can do please don't hesitate and let me know




I remember the first time I had heard Chad's name. It was in Junior High. Nobody could beat his time in a back and forth speed running contest in the gym. Chad was the fastest on his feet, quick with his wit. In high school Chad impressed me with his intellect. He always pushed himself to be at the top of the class. Whatever that meant. Studying late at night, sacrificing this or that to do well. His legacy though, at least for me, will not be about events, how intelligent he was, or even what he accomplished in this life. Chad's legacy is one of selfless service, regardless of price. He placed serving others ahead of everything else. Even his own health and finances. Chad taught me so much. Indirectly, yet powerfully. By his example. I am indebted to him. I extend my sincere condolences to the Reeves family. God be with you now and always.

I just heard of Chad's passing a couple of days ago I had the pleasure of going to high school with Chap and he was and is about giving of him self and service to others. You can tell that Chap was blessed with loving parents and family by the way he treated others.

Deeply saddened with the passing of Chad, on behalf of friends and colleagues at Peace Corps Malawi in Africa where Chad served for almost three years as a Health Volunteer, I extend condolences to the bereaved family. May the Almighty Lord strengthen and be with all family members / friends during these difficult trying times. Chad shall be deeply missed but his professionalism and service in Malawi shall always be remembered. May His Rest in Peace.

I would like to offer my deepest sympathies to you.  I have experienced the pain of death myself.  I have lost many who were dear to me. I am so sorry for your loss.  Please know that you are never alone. Turn to the Holy Scriptures for guidance and to help soothe your heart.  Psalms 34:18 assures us that God is near to those broken at heart and crushed in spirit.  Please accept my deepest sympathies.
