  1. With all my love – happy memories of great times at Mama and Papa’s years ago. My Mother said over and over, “Macy was the prettiest person when you Dad and I married”. She would tell her than and then say “and you still are”. Remember many times there with the family.
    I hurt for you Shirley as we know this feeling…………but you, Judy and me are so blessed to have had our parents to the ages we are today. Even Dad – had him a long time also. I am with you in thoughts and prayers…….talk with you soon. Love you. Jeane

  2. My Dear Aunt Macy it’s doesn’t seem real that you left us so soon. I know Uncle Ollie was calling and now you are at peace free from pain with a clear mind no worries just joy and love and smiles RIP Aunt Macy I’ll be seeing again love you watch over us till we come home.

  3. I loved you and Ollie so much, our friendship goes back 50 years. You two were a great couple, you are now together for eternity. Shirley, you are in our thoughts and prayers. Love, Betty

  4. I have so many memories of our younger days. She was always a joy to be with and I treasure the laughs we shared. She was the last to go in the Chastain family and I know there was a great crowd of greeters when she arrived in her heavenly home. Shirley, you and your family are in my prayers.

  5. Shirley, this is a most difficult time for you, but the great memories of wonderful parents is what will be with you to give you comfort. Jeane and I know how hard this is, but we also can smile and remember wonderful shared times with great dear parents. Daddy and Mama loved your parents. They are all back together again and what a homecoming that must be for the whole family. Love and prayers, Judy

  6. “And the last enemy, death, is to be brought to nothing.” (1 Corinthians 15:26) I cannot imagine the pain that your family is going through right now. God promises that he will soon wipe away and reverse the effects of this enemy that causes so much pain. Your precious one will be brought back to you and you will never have to experience the pain of losing her ever again. This is a promise from God! (Isaiah 33:24; Isaiah 25:8; Revelation 21:4,5)
