I will always remember our Pantera Car Club trips every year with Chandler and Chris and our once a month brunch get togethers. Oh her laughter and smile could light up a room she was so funny. She had an absolute love for old cars and new, the faster and sleek the better. She was such a great friend and always asked me and Bob what was new. Her love for her grandsons kept her going and she loved all the stages of their growing from an infant to toddlers. Bob and I will miss her.

I was Blessed to have known Chandler. She was my son Jeff's dear mother-in-law, a sweet friend of mine, and the most wonderful Grandmother our little grandsons could have ever had! Hayden and Tristan adore her and always will. I will treasure the memories of the most beautiful Colorado Wedding she planned for our children. It was perfect! I will also cherish the special Holidays, birthdays and special occasions we spent together with our family. We all love her very much and will deeply miss her. God Bless You Chandler! Cindy Mellott

Chandler had a great sense of humor that I greatly appreciated as her husband's sister.
We loved to stay up late to talk and laugh after the rest of the family went to bed.
