  5. Dear Family of the Dear departed Chippy, What a Wonderful soul she was. (I was a CNA for 10 years and Chippy (along with Sister) was under my care.) Chippy was ;in my opinion; always cheerful and always looked out for her friend across the hall. Chippy cared about other people and that made her stand out in a crowd! Everyone will miss Chippy but when I think of Chippy, I can only remember her charm. Sincerely, Bruce Carey
