Ernie and family, I just heard about your mother. She was a jewel. When mother was in Settler's Ridge, I got an opportunity to visit with your mom many times. She sure loved you and the grandchildren. My deepest sympathy to all of you. Lynda Vest Humbarger, September 8, 2009 Ernie and family, I was so sorry to hear of the passing of your mother. Please know you are in my thoughts and prayers. With deepest sympathy, Kemp Willard. Kemp Willard, September 8, 2009 We love you and will miss you Nanny. Brett Chesney, September 6, 2009 We loved being in Francis and Earnest Chesney's home. That Francis has put many a meal on the table for us and our girls, Sharon Kaye and Karen Faye. We have enjoyed the best steaks we ever ate in their kitchen. They would carry our twins around Forney as well as watch them in church. They were truly our friends and were a joy to be around. Truly, they have left their family quite a heritage. God bless you all. Jerry and Helen Griffin, September 5, 2009
