    Chanse was a childhood friend that always brightened any room he entered. I have spent many of days at the Thurston's home skateboarding with Chanse and the Wade Hampton crew, and let me tell you that's a tight group of friends that I was fortunate to be a part of. You will be forever missed my brother but never forgotten. Until we met again bro, hold things down until we all reunite. Much love bro.

    Chanse was my first friend ever that I can remember and bestie through grade school. We liked to skate board, listen to punk rock and get in to trouble. Life was carefree and It was the best of times. I will miss you Michael Chanse Thurston Jr.

    Chanse is the love of my life! He left us tragically, but it doesn't make me love him any less. I'm not sure how I'm supposed to go on without him, I guess time Will make it better. He is the strongest, sweetest. Most loving, hard headed man I've ever met! I didn't get to Marry the Man of my dreams:--( but we will get our'together forever' one day! He's my love. My life. My reason, my EVERYTHING!! And will be till we meet again! Where I'll kick his butt. Then wrap my arms around him and never let him go!
