    It was impossible not to love this man. He was always laughing, smiling, and making sure you knew how much he loved you. Being 85 years old never stopped him from jabbing a witty comment when he could. Grandpa, you were loved by all and missed by many, especially me.

    Your great granddaughter

    Dear Family,
    Claire and Don Chagin were were two of the most unique individuals we have had the pleasure of knowing. No matter how dreary life would appear, when they walked in a room the whole atmosphere would change, birds would sing, bells would ring, and pure light and sunshine would follow. Loved sharing our little place in this world with them and their family. Don , your absence will be felt by many who were lucky enough to cross paths with you in this life. We are better people for knowing you. Blessings to you all….Jerry, Geraldine and Family

    I’m so sorry to hear about Uncle Don. He’s with Claire and they’re dancing. Who could forget his smile, it was beautiful and comforting My love and prayers to all.

    Claire and Don both were like a second mom and dad to me and my sister as we were growing up. We spent many a night and weekends playing games, camping and just enjoying each others families being together. There is no doubt that he joins Claire and my father Bob in Heaven.

    To the Chagin family, I’m very sorry for your loss. No matter how much time passes we still feel the loss of our loved ones and view death as God does, an enemy. (1 Corinthians 15:26) May you find comfort and hope in His promise at Revelation 21:3,4 that shows soon there will be no more death, sickness, or pain, and we can see our lost loved ones again. Please accept my deepest condolences.

Please share your thoughts ...
