Dan and Casey,
I'm so sorry for your loss. Baby Asher moved so many hearts and stirred so much faith in his brief moments with us. He will always be remembered.
Our prayers are with you.
Love, Eileen

Coach and Casey,
We tried to post earlier but unsuccessful. We wanted you to know that you and your family are in our prayers. We pray that the Lord will wrap you all with His love and care. We know that through this difficult time the Lord will continue to reveal His plan. And even though we have not been there physically with you both, you all have been in our thoughts and prayers. We know that you both will continue to SHINE for the Lord and throughout your journey you all have been such a witness to so many people.
Please know that we love you!

oh casey and dan i wish that i can be there right now. when i found out asher i just started to cry and did not know what to do or what to think. the only thing is that i have to realize is that God has everything under control even though sometimes it doesnt seem like it. Casey i am so glad that ur my sister i would never ask for a better sister like you and Brittany. Dan im bless to have you as my brother in-law. i wish that there is more that i can say and do but i just cant really do anything because im in TX. the only thing i can do for yall is to pray. i love yall so much and i hope that i can come and see yall soon.


Your family has been in my prayers. I rejoiced with you silently over the test results just this week. Now my heart grieves for your loss, but I know you take comfort knowing Asher went from your arms straight into the arms of the God. You will continue to be in my prayers during the difficult time ahead.

Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves have received from God.

2nd Corinthians 1: 3-4

Stephanie and Eric Davis

There are no words that would comfort you or fill that missing piece of life in your let me just say what a blessing you both are, whether in appearence or full spirit--your ability to live green with fruit displays the a well of true water---I pray the very breath of heaven to cover you today as your held in His arms.

Eric and Stephanie Davis

Rusty and Ashley Ramsey

We love you and you are in our prayers. May the Lord give you the strength and peace that you need! He has each of you in his hands and even though you don't understand, He will guide you and bless you more than you will ever know! Continue to let Him be your light and your hope and He will not fail you! Love you both very much!

Rusty and Ashley


My heart is broken for you both, but I encourage you in the Lord. I pray that you will find your comfort and relief in Him and that He will bless you with some understanding.

It is better, if it is God's will, to suffer for doing good than for evil. 1 Peter 3:17

Please know that your suffering was certainly for good and have hope that it will produce fruit.

Love in Christ,

Our prayers will not cease to be with you! Dan & Casey, you have been an amazing Daddy & Mommy to little Asher Daniel! You have fought for his life and loved him hard! God is glorified in this! Our tears are real because we are the Body of Christ and we grieve with you now! May mourning be replaced with joy as you think on Asher being with Jesus right now! We love you guys and want to love you well during this time.

Sue Lorenz

Dear Dan and Casey,

Scott and I are silenced by God's sovereignty. We praise Him for your welcoming of Asher. A lifetime is but a moment. We praise Him for a mommy and daddy who would not give up on him and who ushered him into the Father's hands.

We grieve with you and will continue to pray for you.

Love, the Lorenz's


Casey, we are so sorry for your loss but rejoice that God has brought HIs child home. we are praying for you guys and love you.

We can only imagine how it feels to be in your shoes right now...your son has made his mark on this world and even if he lingered only for a little while, he will be loved all the more. We will continue to lift you up to the Lord of all mercy and grace hoping you feel the love from all your family in Alaska, too. I wish we could've been in the waiting room with those prayer warriors at that hospital. Wow! If only you could see all the prayer warriors as they prayed everywhere for your baby boy and his family! Asher Daniel Chappell is a precious blessing to us all and God has used him mightily to bring His people together in one spirit of prayer. We will trust the Lord even when it hurts. Love you. Sheila and Cary Bierdeman


so glad they were able to see him take his first and last breath. what a blessing. I will be praying for Dan and Casey to have strength at this time. I will also ask Him to give as much of their pain and sorrow over to me as possible. Thank you for all of the updates.

You and your family are in our thoughts and prayers. We love you very much and know that we will continue to pray for you all. God Bless you.

Renata Dean

We are praying for you and wishing you the comfort and peace that only the true comforter can give. May the Lord grant you peace until you see Asher again in Heaven.

Love, The Dean Family

Angela Murray

News that you were on the way to the hospital was whirling around Open Door tonight. Many there were praying for you then and I know are praying for you still.

We are praying that you will be given comfort and peace that our Abba can provide through this.

Pam Freeth

I am so sad to hear that Asher could not be with you longer. God has a plan for some of our most precious children. I wish I could wrap my arms around you and comfort you. I know your pain. You are in our prayers. Your son had a purpose and his short life glorfies God by bringing us all here together and having the world stop for us to see perfection in a tiny soul who will never struggle with sin. He will be free of pain, sadness and trials. We must lean on each other and praise this miracle and remember we will be with him again one day.

Dan & Casey,
