  1. To my dear cousin, Barbara and her family,
    You truly will be missed. What a joy it must be to see Jesus and be welcomed by the Chandler Family, too. Please, give your Aunt “Tillie” a hug for me (my Mommy). I will always remember our family times in Boomer, when John (Johnny) and I were kids and I looked up to both you and Martha. Oh, what good times! Our family will always remember you and Gene hosting the family reunion in CO. You really blessed us all with your love and hospitality. Thank you for your love for family, your amazing smile and enthusiastic personality.
    We will always Love You,
    Steve and Sandee Gray
