Chambers, Melvia Marie (Storey)'s Guestbook

I'll sure miss you, Melvia. There are no words to describe what you've meant to me- and to us- over the years. I'll miss your wit and your wisdom. And you love and hugs.


Melvia has been a part of our family for over sixty years and she was dearly loved by all of us. She was a joy to know and always so willing and helpful to others in so many ways. She truly had a heart of gold. I also have wonderful memories of many holidays spent together, family vacations and other activities. God gave us an angel when he gave us Melvia and now he has taken her back home to be with him. Rest in peace my special friend.
