Condolences

  • My deep condolences to the Chapman family, I was really touched by the loss of your loved one. When a precious loved one falls asleep in death, it brings to mind God’s precious son Jesus. It is comforting to note how he viewed death. I would like to share it with you from the gift that the Most High God has given to each & everyone of us. His written word the Bible in the Book of John chapter 11 verses 11-14.
    Please, notice that Jesus viewed death as one Sleeping. He viewed death in such a comforting way. And, the Most High God promises that we can have the opportunity to see our loved ones again in perfect health (Psalms 83:18, Acts 24:15, & Isaiah 33:24). He even says where: Psalms 37:11 and for how long Psalms 37:29). I really hope that these promises were as comforting to you as they were to us when our daughter died and also when my precious husband of 50 years fell asleep in death.
    Written to you in deep sympathy,
    Sissy

  • We’re are so sorry to hear of Dales passing! We love the Chapman family and have many fond memories of growing up across the street from them. Dales smile and his kind nature will never be forgotten! I remember watching Dale and Lottie when they were dating and seeing their love for each other. I wanted the same kind of love for myself. Yours truly is a beautiful love story with an amazing legacy of love!!
    None of my family were able to attend Dales funeral because of prior commitments. We send our deepest sympathy and love to you Lottie and your lovely family.

    Dale was a good man. Dependable, Integral, Honest, Hard Working, always up beat and positive. I Loved him and I love his family. Loved being around them. Lottie and the kids were always wonderful to me and mine. Did I say I love the Chapman family? Havent seen or talked to them in a long long time but i hope they all know I love them. I thank Heavenly Father everyday for Eternal Families and I know that the Chapman Family is one….

  • I know this is a bit late and not sure anyone will read this but thought I would post anyway. Dale was one of my church teachers when I was young. He was also a man I was assigned to work with when I was working at Gilbert plumbing. He was an interesting person. I learned a great deal from him in my time there and had a good time working with him. He was a hard worker, a good plumber, and a man with integrity. The skills I learned while working with him and a few other good men has blessed my life several thousand times over. God bless the Chapman family. Here’s to you Dale.
