Cheley and Bud were another of the fine couples who I met through Community Church services as I was her substitute pianist before Joy came from the First Baptist Hispanic mission to the Presbyterian Church . Grieve-as-you must; not-as-others are telling you is right, wrong or indifferent. Remember, you are not orphaned as long as you carry your heritage forward to cling tightly to His unfailing and unchanging hand. May He bless you as they blessed others.

Cheley was a fine Christian lady and a joy to know. I was her substitute pianist for church and community events. Grieve-as-you must; not-as-others are telling you is right, wrong or indifferent. Remember, you are not orphaned as-long-as you cling tightly to our Lord's unfailing and unchanging hand per your heritage. May He bless you greatly.

Cheley was a sincere Christian lady who was always friendly. I met her when I was Manager of the Nutrition Site in Beaver, Oklahoma and community events at the church as I substituted playing the piano for her from time to time. Grieve-as-you must; not-as-others are telling you is right, wrong or indifferent. Remember, you are not orphaned as you cling tightly to our Lord's unfailing and unchanging hand. May God bless each of you in this time of great loss.
