    Chub was a fun loving brother in law. He will truly be missed. Joy no sympathy is deep enough, no words are caring enough to take away sorrow. Just know that God loves you and so do I.

    While I never met Mr. Dandridge, I feel as though I’ve known him for a long time from the way Joy speaks about him. His loss is so great leaving so many people to feel empty without him. Rest In Paradise Mr. Dandridge. I will make sure to be there for Joy.
