Elizabeth Maggie Cass-Allen, August 31, 2010 "Thats My Girl Madian Pearl" I remember those words so very well as I heard them nearly everyday from Brother Chumbley from they day that they moved across the street from us. What an amazing woman and I will always cherish her memory. Brother Chumbley and I were pretty big buddies and always had some old car project going at one time or another. I remember we even learned on the job how to paint a couple of those cars and Madian was always right there with constant words of encouragement when we thought we just couldnt do it. She thought otherwise. She also made sure we were filled with food and never thirsty during our all day deals. I am so lucky to have had such an amazing woman as this to help raise me during my teenage years. I love her dearly. Richard Ben Cass, August 31, 2010 I am so sorry for your loss. May the Lord comfort you today and in the days to come. God bless you. Charm Cameron, August 30, 2010 Your family is in our hearts and prayers. We are so sorry for your loss.
