  1. Just last night I wrote my Christmas card to Mrs. Chandley. We have exchanged cards each year since she moved away from Inglewood. What a lovely lady she was! I hope you have wonderful memories that will ease your grief. With sympathy, Peggy and Dave Beaman

  2. We and Eva were side-by-side neighbors for over 30 years until she moved to Hendersonville and we changed locations. We have good memories of being neighbors. Thoughts and prayers to the family.

  3. Jean:

    So sorry to hear about your Mom. I remember her as a most kind and gentle person. Please accept my deepest sympathy.
