Rives C. Chalmers

May 13, 1947November 16, 2013

Fill not your hearts with pain and sorrow, but remember me in every tomorrow. Remember the joy, the laughter, the smiles, I’ve only gone to rest a little while.

Although my leaving causes pain and grief, my going has eased my hurt, and given me relief.

So dry your eyes and remember me, not as I am now, but as I used to be. Because, I will remember you all, and look on with a smile. Understand in your hearts, I’ve only gone to rest a little while.

As long as I have the love of each of you, I can live my life in the hearts of all of you.

Dr. Chalmers was a very special man, and I will miss him. He took care of me for many years, and was instrumental in getting me my new knee. He was a gentle, caring man, and the medical profession has lost one of their best. My prayers and thoughts to the family he loved so much, and spoke of often with me. We loved sharing stories about our children! With deepest sympathy, Bev Jacoby

Dear Ann and family,
I am so sorry you have lost such a great man. Working for Dr. Chalmers was an honor, I always felt we were a team. I feel so lucky to have had the experience of knowing him and your wonderful family. He was so proud of all of you. There is definitely a void now with him gone but the memories will always be there.

I was shocked and sorry to read about Rives' death yesterday. He took such good care of my hands over the years, and we had nice conversations about music and singing. Please accept my deepest sympathy.
