Sandra and Sue, I'm so very sorry for your loss. I just seen this or this would have been sooner. I pray God will give you peace and confront . I will never forget all the times we had together. I loved when your mom would come over and I can just see her and mom setting and laughing so hard. Chauncey will never be the same without these wonderful women there. I never knew anything had happened to Shelby either.

I am so sorry to hear about your mom. I pray for God's comfort and peace for you. I have many childhood memories of your whole family. Your dog was the only dog that ever bit me. I remember many hours swinging in your yard. You guys were the only kids with a swing set in your yard.
My heart is broken for you.
