felt condolences of the Chandler Family of Texas. You are in our prayors tonight.
Bradley, Noriko, Aaran, Forrest and
Mother there are no words to express the ache in my
heart. I will miss you so much and will keep you forever in my heart. Some mothers are kissing mothers and some are scolding
mothers, but it is love just the same, and most mothers kiss and scold together. That was so you Mom. Even in all the scolding
I knew you loved me.
Your loving daughter Deborah Bricker
I love you and will miss you very much. I know
you are at peace and I will see you someday again.
Thank you to everyone who has sent their blessings.
Our Mother will be missed. She is in God's Kingdom and her spirit will live in all of us forever.
Dear Mom you will be sadly missed. Rest in peace
till we are together again in another time. I love you.
Your daughter Kathy
To me it will seem like a life time to be
with you again. Sleep soundly Mom. Feel the love of your family until we arrive.
