CreeBell I am so sorry to hear about the passing of your daughter, Iris. Just know that you and the family have my deepest sympathy and are in my thoughts and prayers! "Earth has no sorrow that heaven cannot heal." God is there to comfort and surround you with his love.

"We, the sons and daughters of Mr. & Mrs. William P. Chapman, Sr., wish to express our gratitude and respect for Mrs. Iris Meekins to her Mother, Mrs. CreeBell Meekins and the Meekins family. We as the Chapman family mourn with the family and continue to remember the friendship we had with Iris, her sisters, Linda and Brenda. We remember swimming in the swimming pool, in the back yard, during the summer, the birthday parties, drinking Nehi soda, Orange Crush sodas, eating honey buns, and singing in our community choir. Iris played the piano along with her grandmother, Mrs. Patterson, directing the choir. Oh, the memories we honor/cherish of Iris, Linda, and Brenda as our childhood friends, and Mrs. Meekins and Mr. Meekins, as neighbors."
"Therefore let it be known, that we know the deep loss and sorrow your family is experiencing. We want to share in your sorrow but recognize that the Lord has accepted into his presence a good and faithful servant."
Sent with our sympathy,
Mr. Echol Chapman, Bolingbrook, IL
Mrs. Betty Ann Moore, Atlanta, GA
Mrs. Margaret Calhoun, Tallapoosa, GA
Mrs. Ruby Mae Chapman, Chicago, IL
Mr. William P. Chapman, Jr., Greenville, SC
