Monday, January 21, 2019 – You know how sometimes you have a friend that you haven’t seen in forever and you need something from them? You contact them and being the special person they are they don’t hang up, even though it’s been forever since you talked last, and now you’re calling needing something!
Well, not only do they not hang up but they end up doing way more than you asked for. Just cause they are that kind of person!
Our friend that just did this is John S. known by most as Chip S. No, our Chip Chauvin was not named after him but he is the person named Chip that we got the idea from. Chip is our son’s real name but Chip is John’s nickname.
Long, long ago before we had our sons I worked as a legal secretary for Chip at a law firm in New Orleans. I’m not really sure how I came to work there but I remember eating a lot of Charles Chips there and him playing the guitar. I again worked for him at a different law firm a couple of years later. I believe it was during that time that Chip started writing a novel. I was blessed to be the one who typed what he wrote during that time. We even went to Oak Alley Plantation one time to gather information for the novel.
We went our separate way but Chip sent us his family’s Christmas photo card each year so I got to watch his two sons grow up that way. Maybe every five years or so we’d contact each other and then there was Facebook. He continued to sporadically write his novel and now 40 plus years later he’s finished and it is being published! The story line changed drastically over the years but the part I typed is still somewhere in there! I’ve read parts of it and I think it’s great. When it’s published and I get to read it I will be sharing about it here!
When we began communicating with the family that Dora is going to California to live with they sent us an agreement to consider that they entered into with someone else whose RV notes they took over. We reached out to Chip to just review it. We wound up having in depth conversations about various options he pointed out that we had with Dora. He made important phone calls on our behalf and really helped us see much more than what we were focused on. He listened to all our thoughts and concerns and explained so many things to us that helped us make our final decision. I’d rather not explain it all here but he once again proved why we will always be friends. He didn’t lead us to make any specific decision, he just informed us so we could make a good decision.
He just finalized the agreement we will sign with the couple from California. It is perfect for this unusual situation and I believe protects us and the other couple very well. Through this process I’ve felt so comforted to know that this Superhero attorney was on our side and had our best interest at heart.
Thanks Chip, from the bottom of our heart for your advice, support, guidance. Anyone looking for an attorney superhero let me know and I’ll give you his contact information.
Ya’ll come back now, ya’ hear!
