So sorry to hear about the passing of Mr. Al Chavis. Our prayers are with Mrs. Stella Chavis and all their kids. I remember Mr. Chavis showing me how to change the oil for the first time in the 55 Chevy truck that he sold to me. Mr. Al was a good man that loved his family. He and his family showed me much kindness and I am glad I had the privilege to know him and his family.
