Chambers, Gwyneth L.'s Guestbook

I didn't know you but I knew one of your sons (Jeff) and you sure raised a good son and I am sure as well as the others. Mothers and Grandmothers are very special people to whom should be honored each day of their life. I know you must be rejoicing with our Lord Jesus Christ and your family members and friends in Heaven. While your family and friends here on earth are sad about your departure, we know you are no longer in pain and so happy in Heaven. My prayers and thoughts are with your family. Rest in peace.
