    Hello, Chandler family, just wanted to let you know that my heart was heavy when I heard about the passing of Mr. Chandler. They say that you can’t pick your neighbors but growing up next door until I moved in 1983 it was a pleasure to be associated with all of you. Please know that Mr. Chandler is in the safest place he could ever be in Gods watch care. Missing our loved ones and grieving is normal so please accept the comfort only God through his word can give us.
    With love always
    Tyrone Williams and Family

    To the Chandler family,
    I want to say you are in my prayers and God bless. I grew up and graduated from high school with Mr. And Ms. Chandler’s youngest son William in 1993. Mr and Ms Chandler were always patient, kind and welcoming even, when I would come by unannounced to the house (which was often). You will truly be missed and remembered. Thank you.
