Such a beautiful lady, mom and friend. A heart of gold, caring, loving person. Always put herself 2nd and was always there to stand up to anyone. Carried a broken heart, but yet always found a smile to you. A blessed start is born, Chic, I will look for you to shine down upon us. Rest you soul now. Your rotten kid in the neighborhood.. lol.. one eye.. Tom

Tim and Sandy, so sorry to hear of your mom's passing. Chick was such a wonderful woman and I have many great memories of her. My mom always considered her one of her dearest friends. May you find comfort in knowing that you were blessed with a great Mom for so many years. Sincerely, Lisa Stewart Lockman
