H.V. Chapin was my brother-in-law, but I really considered him to be my big brother. He was always there for me. I met him when I was about 12 years old. No matter how awful my life was going, he was there to tell me that I was a good person and that things were going to be OK. He was my best encourager. All these many years H.V. was there with a big smile, pleasant conversation and also wanted to know what the other person was doing in their lives. I don't think I ever heard him say a bad word. Always cheerful even when his illness was making him feel terrible. We all have a lot to learn when we look at how he led his life. He has three really great children and he was a wonderful husband to my sister for 63 years. His place in our lives will forever be empty now that he is gone. I am so glad that I got a chance to tell him how much he meant to me before he passed away. There will never be another person just like him.
