The Memorial Candle Program has been designed to help offset the costs associated with the hosting this Tribute Website in perpetuity. Through the lighting of a memorial candle, your thoughtful gesture will be recorded in the Book of Memories and the proceeds will go directly towards helping ensure that the family and friends of J.D. Chastain can continue to memorialize, re-visit, interact with each other and enhance this tribute for future generations.

Thank you.

Condolence From: Brenda C Thomas
Condolence: MaryAnn - I was a secretary in the crime lab when J,D. was in charge. I admired him so very much. He touched my life and was very patient with me. I was a little frightened of him at first but soon learned he was a loving teddy bear that cared deeply for all his staff. I know your life was greatly enhanced these past 40 years. Sending love & prayers. Brenda
