  • Madge was a cousin of my husband’s on the Chapman side of the family. We rarely were able to be together but sent Christmas cards and tried to stay in touch. Finally three years ago we were able to be together at the Chapman reunion and had a good visit. We are very sorry for your family’s loss and are sorry we will not be able to attend the funeral services but wanted to tell you how wonderful it was watching the video. Whoever put it together did a good job. Take care and God bless you.
