At 1:23 am on Saturday, October 7, 2017 our son Chase Herman Lamkin entered this world and was already one of God’s precious angels. He was beautiful and perfect in every way with long arms, legs, fingers, and toes. He weighed 1 pound 12 ounces and was 13 inches long. Chase had a head full of dark blonde, curly hair and sweet cherry red lips. While still in the womb, Chase was always very active, moving and kicking, especially in the early mornings and late evenings. He let us know that he loved going to church by dancing around to the music every Sunday. Reading books to him each night was something we enjoyed together and Chase would often give an approving kick when the story was finished. His little life was far too short, but we had big hopes and dreams for him. We dreamed of taking him to the lake on our boat and couldn’t wait to teach him to fish. Grandpa and his uncles would have surely taught him all about football and wrestling. We hoped that those long fingers of his would help him master the piano or another musical instrument. Mostly, we prayed that he would have a happy life, making and achieving dreams of his own.A Celebration of Chase will be on Wednesday October 11, 2017 at St. Mary's Catholic Church in Winnebago at 1:30PM. Interment will follow in Ridgelawn Memorial Park in Rural Truman. Chase is survived by his loving parents, Calvin and Nicole Lamkin; his grandparents, Tom and Brenda Zehnder, and Sandra Cummins; great uncle Larry Cummins; his aunt and uncle Laura and Mike Bidne, and cousins Thomas and Julia; his uncle and aunt Eric and Gena Zehnder, and cousins Nolan, Calen, and Bennett; his uncle Rob Zehnder and special friend Sara Welch; and numerous other family and close friends who loved him more than he could ever know.
