From my family to your's, please except our condolences. Chip was a great friend and mentor to me. Our many discussions on Scouting and the workings of the Swainsboro Kiwanis, helped me be better at those positions I held. He was always there to assist and to guide. He will be missed.

It was a pleasure to know "Chip" Durden. He was a good man who met and overcame an unusual number of health challenges - but he could always be counted on to do his part in his community, civic and historical work. He will be missed.

Elaine and I wish to extend our sympathy and condolences to the Durden family. Chip was an inspiration to me as I sought to serve as Governor of the Georgia District. His example of commitment to Kiwanis and the Georgia District was at a level deserving of emulation. He leaves a void that only the memory of him can fill.

Jane, I am so sorry to learn of Chip's death.   I miss seeing you since I am no longer able to attend the FFG meetings.   I have moved to Marsh's Edge Retirement Home and I found the invitation to your wedding while i was sorting boxes of  valuable collections.   You probably won't remember that Bill and i attended your wedding!  We were very fond of your in-laws.
Know that I will be thinking of you and praying for you as you adjust to life without Chip.   You two have been such a positive influence on  so many people and Chip will surely be missed by all those who knew him.   You will be in my daily prayers.   I love you,
Nancy Lanier
