  1. Words cannot express how saddened we are for your family. It is so hard to give up someone that means so much to you. Thankfully, you know that she is a Christian and you will see her again and spend eternity with her.

  2. Charlie, Cindy, Carl, Chip
    So many great memories of Mary and all the great conversations we had. She was always so interested in what was going on with me first.. She put family and friends first.
    I will miss her greatly, but will always be glad I had the good fortune to know her. Mary was the best!
    Love to all the great Chastain family!

My heart hurts tonight, but I’m so happy for Mary. God Bless all of you. Love, Don and Donna

  5. My dear friend , I can not reach the level of your grief. Miss Carolyn and I will do 50 yrs. in Nov. I have always said I was a coward and wanted to go first. We do not get to choose.

  7. You and your family members have my deepest sympathy for your loss. Please know that our heavenly father, Jehovah brings comfort to all who have fallen asleep in death with the hope of the resurrection. And how we look forward to the day when the last enemy, death, “is to be brought to nothing”! 1 Corinthians 15:26 Confidence in Jehovah’s resurrection promise brings us comfort and a sure hope for the future.

  9. Mary and Charlie have meant so much to our family through the years. Mom and Dad enjoyed such wonderful Christian fellowship with both of them. I wish we could have been there to share our love and concern. So many of us will miss Mary’s beautiful smile.

  10. It was with a deep sadness that we recently learned of Mary’s passing. Our get-togethers with Charles & Mary were always special occasions that we enjoyed immensely. She will be greatly missed.

  11. I always looked forward to seeing you, albeit not very often. You were one of Momma’s favorite relatives, may you rest in peace.
