Paula and Greg:
So sorry to hear of the passing of your dad. I did not know about this until after the fact or I would have attended the funeral. You all will be in my thoughts and prayers.

So sorry to hear of the loss of Mr. Chapman. He was such a sweet man. He loved to sing hymns. Myself , and some of the staff at Mountain View would sing with him at times. My thought as I found out about his passing was.... Mr. Chapman is singing the hymns with his Lord for eternity. I know that he is rejoicing in Heaven. May God bless each of you at this sad time.
