    To the family, From Lisa Chappell Anderson, I'm so sorry for your loss. I loved your Mom. I miss Daddy everyday and I know she never got over it because every time we talked we cried about him. Then we would start laughing about the funny times we had with him. I remember him telling her she looked like an angel when she wore a white dress to a high school reunion. Well I know it is hard to be positive right now because it hurts so bad but they are no longer in pain they are with Jesus. And now she is a Beautiful angel at the most important Reunion. We will keep you in our prayers and please keep these Chappell kids in your prayers! We love you all!💕

    God Bless you and your families at this time. Blaine and I always enjoyed stopping and talking to her when we would come through on the paper route while they were working at the store. She was such a sweet lady and will be sorely missed. If any of you guys need anything, remember me and Blaine are just a couple of doors down. That is what neighbors are for is to help each other out.

    I'm sorry about the loss of your mother and wanted to extend my condolences. One thing that has helped our family deal with the death of my mother-in-law is to keep the promise at John 5:28,29 close to our hearts - I hope it helps you too.

    I am so very sorry for the loss of Judy, I have known her many years, we were friends after both of us were married and had some fun times, she was a beautiful person inside and out. There is sadness because she is gone but happiness that she lived. Bless all of her family!
