Chandler, Dorothy Ann (Bell)'s Guestbook

She is the most kind, loving, welcoming mother in law you could ever dream of. She took me in and taught me how to be a woman, mother, and grandmother. Her home and her heart were open to all family anytime, any need. She was a fantastic cook and loved to play cards. And took all our teasing with a laugh. Her smile her demeanor- she was a role model for me. Her drives to our homes to see grandchildren and great grandchildren are precious memories. She taught us how to live through life’s hardships with grace. Even in her final years she would smile and radiate kindness even when she had he own challenges. We love you always and miss you dearly.

Thank you Mrs. Chandler and family for always providing a welcoming in the family. Many of you and Dorothy took care of me when I was younger and always loved and cared as you didn’t have to but did anyway. I’m forever grateful for knowing Dorothy as she set an example of a kind person that I and others strive to be. Love ya all. Lynn
