Celebrating the life of Ms. Mary Helen Chavis
Thank you for signing Ms. Mary Helen Chavis 's Guestbook
We can look forward to the day when there will be no more sickness and death. Revelation 21:4 says: "And he (God) will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away." God cares for the brokenhearted; Psalm 34:18 assures us that he is close to them. Please accept my sincere condolences. Always remember God loves you and he cares for you! (Psalm 36:7; 1 Peter 5:7)

Aunt Mary, The Saying Which Reads “Gone To Soon” Is So True. I Think Of You And Smile. Then I Ask Why, Aunt Mary? Gods Word Says,”My Thoughts Are Not Your Thoughts” And Another Verse Says, “Count It ALL Joy.” So Being A Believer In Jesus Christ, I have To Rest in Knowing HE has You. And Will Give The Family “Perfect Peace.” We Will Miss Hearing Your Voice,Laughter,Eating that Delicious Food And Seeing your Infectious Smile. The Time That I’ve Been Around You Always Made Me Feel Like I Was Welcomed. Will Definitely Miss You Calling Saying, “Lauren” where’s “Fatboy.” I Know He Misses You And Will Remain Close To His Heart. We Love You Aunt Mary You Will Never Be Forgotten. Love Always, Thomas and Lori
