Granny was one of the sweetest people I have ever met. We were tied to her through Becky and Dale Diller. Granny always had a smile on her face and remembered us throughout the years. We love you Grannie... Rest in Peace

To Peggy and family, Glenn and family, and all the Chandler cousins. I am so sad to learn that your mother and Aunt has passed away. I am happy for her to now be with her loved ones in heaven. She lived a long, happy life and took great care of her children, grandchildren, and husband. God bless you all with comfort and peace.
