    Dear Family of Chip Wells: I know this comes to you terribly late but my wife Lynda and I just found out this past Sunday that you lost Chip to his battle with Cancer. We want you to know what a bright spot Chip was ALWAYS!…whenever we would eat at Big Boy of Grand Blanc. Chip always went out of his way to make sure our meal was perfect! He was a gentleman! When you met, Chip you had a lifetime friend. We will miss his friendly and polite manner. He was a genuine pleasure to know and talk with. Please accept our sincere condolences even though long overdue! God bless all of you!
