We were so saddened to hear of Mrs. Chaney's passing. She was one of the sweetest people we had ever met. After all those years of life she still had such a positive outlook and was always so cheerful to be around. It was so evident that Jesus lived through her and we know heaven received another angel. We pray that God will comfort her family as they grieve her passing and leave each of you feeling blessed to have had such a wonderful Christian woman be a part of your lives.
