It's so hard to know what to say. As great as he was our leader it doesn't compare to the wonderful human being he truly was. I for one will really miss him, the world feels a little empty today.

I worked with Connie for 15 years and considered her a special friend. I got to witness her love for Chig and their beautiful family. Their door was always open to all and Connie was never short on food to all who dropped by. My prayers go out to the family and all those who knew and loved Chig.

Sending my heartfelt condolences to the LaDue family,
I got to know Chig years ago while attending and helping out with the Trenton rodeo and the pit barbeque. We had some great times together. He was an amazing man, and someone I was proud to call a friend. Chig, your pain is over and the Great Spirit has taken you home. You are gone, but will never be forgotten.
