Sis. Chase was truly a classy lady. We often spoke of trading shoes though we did not wear the same size. I will always remember the patience and kindness she demonstrated with Bro. Chase. Her presence will be missed!

"Cousin Bobbie" and husband, Charles, invited me into their home in 1981. I needed a place to live until Larry and I married. She will always be a loving and wonderful woman in my heart.
