In reading the articles and tributes about Mr. Chaykin, I have learned that beyond his enormous talents as a lawyer, Mr. Chaykin was a dedicated and loving husband and a very proud Father. Mr. Cahykin leaves behind a young daughter and Sam Rabin is accepting checks for a college fund on her behalf.
Here is what I have been thinking about, for what its worth:
Steve Chaykin died while saving his wife. Can anything more be said about what kind of man he surely was?
Steve Chaykin died while on vacation, hiking. Can anything more be said about the fragility of life?
Steve Chaykin died way too early and leaves behind a grieving wife and young daughter. Can anything more be said about the preciousness of family?
Steve Chaykin will be laid to rest today.
Kiss your husband or wife or significant other; hug your children; tell the people most important to you that you love them; take care of yourself and enjoy your life to the fullest.
Rest in peace Steve Chaykin.
