To the family of Brenda Chandlier, It is a relief that my friend, Brenda will not have to suffer anymore. I am thankful for the phone calls from Brian to let me know she was with him in Lamar. My husband drove me to Lamar to visit Brenda. We had a good visit, a lot of laughs and shared motherly stories about our families when they were young. She was a hard worker and devoted mother. Her move to Kansas seperated our togetherness but we were reunited when our mothers were in Legacy Assisted Living. She took care of her mother in the beginning of her cancer but sh put her mothers care over her own illness. She loved her boys and their families. I might add what good looking boys! You all three look like your mom and sh looked liked her mother, strong genes! But the best that she had to pass down to her boys was her loyal loving heart. I love all of you, Diane Gilbert Mason and Sam Mason.
