To the Chillus Family I send my deepest heart felt condolences to all of you during these tough times. Watts was a true friend and a good man a very rare breed indeed, the loyalty he showed to people was immeasurable. This was a guy I had the honor of meeting in the summer of 86' and we connected instantly. Watts was a very knowledge person on a lot of topics and he shared his insight and wisdom with me on numerous ocassions. I found out about his illness the end of November and still to this day I'm sadden; but I found my peace in him calling and telling me to come see him at Hospice. Watts you will forever be missed dude. To the Chillus Family, again, thank you for share Watson with the world.
