Happy 55th Emerald Anniversary


Bruce & Myrna Chapman

September 3, 1960 to 2015

Love is patient and kind,

love is not jealous or boastful,

it is not arrogant or rude.

Love does not insist on its own way,

it is not irritable or resentful,

it does not rejoice at wrong,

but rejoices in the right.

Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.

Love never fails.

1 Corinthians 13:4-8

Robert faithfully served the community for many years as the chief of the Sand Lake Fire Department with Ruthan supporting him all the way. God has blessed them with five children, nineteen grandchildren and eight great grandchildren.

July 9, 2005 to July 9, 2015

You are the

Peanut to my butter

Water to my ocean

Glaze on my donut

Spring in my step

Twinkle in my eye

Blue in my sky

Cherry to my sundae

Sweet in my dreams

Flip to my flop

Beat of my heart

Cheese to my macaroni

Best to my friend

Love of my life


I know we’ve had our ups and downs but everything we’ve been through has made us stronger and I want you to know that you complete me. I love you!

Love, your wife, Belinda
