I have heard about Mary, Luther, and Chapman most of my life from my parents, Russell Reno and Eunice Reynolds. He and my parents would visit each other. I have photos of them visiting my Dad's house in Phoenix, Arizona. My Dad thought he was a wonderful man and cousin. May the Lord bless all of you who loved him and miss him.

Uncle Chapman was my mother's older brother. We either visited with him when we could or he would visit with us throughout his life. He was a great person to be around. We will dearly miss him.
