I lived next door to Geraldine's parents on W. Water. in Harrisonburg when Sherley was in the Navy and Carol you were a very small girl. I was older but I loved to play with you. I am 85 now. I remember the whole Chapman family fondly. Looking at her photo reminds me of her Mother. All of you have my deepest sympathy. God bless. Lorraine Kersh Bosserman 321 Sharon Ln. Staunton, Va. 24401

I am so sorry to hear about your mother’s passing. She was a marvelous mother and such an independent woman. I will never forget her generosity to me and how she always made me feel I was one of her daughters as well. I hope she rests in piece and will be reunited with loved ones in heaven. God bless you Mrs. Huddle.

She was a major part of my high school years. She loaned us her kitchen on many a Saturday night to make Chef Boyardee pizza. She put up with the silliness of teenagers and I think she loved every minute of it. I’ll miss you Mrs Huddle.
