So sorry for your loss Grey Marti Mark and Christy and family. Your mom was always a pleasant person and funny. I remember your Mom and Annie Compton telling stories at different times to my Dad and myself and Dad and I would just have belly laughs from cracking up. She always asked how my mom was doing whenever I ran into her, while Mom was going thru her chemo treatments.
May she rest in eternal peace.
Prayers to All. 🙏😇🙏

Grey, Marti, Mark & Kristi
Our sincere condolences on the loss of your Mom. She was a strong, kind & caring person who was always fun to be around, talk with and listen to. She definitely made an indelible impression on me when I was growing up and it was always a joy to see her in person later in life too! The entire Chatham family will be in our thoughts & prayers today and in the days to come as well.

Grey, Marti, Mark, and Lristi,
I am so sorry that I wasn’t able to attend your mom’s services oh, you know I would have been there if I could. She was a large part of my life growing up, and very special to me. I don’t get to see any of you as much as I would like, but you all mean the world to me.

Gray, Marti, Mark and Christy, your mom was such a fun loving gal, and was always so kind to our family. My Dad just loved her, and loved the birthday video she sent for his 80th birthday. I know she will be missed by everyone that knew her. My condolences to you all.
