  5. Chanel was so sweet to keep in touch with me on FaceBook long after going to High School together. She was always so kind to send encouraging messages and I knew they were sent with sincere love. My heart aches that she suffered from her battle with cancer and for all of her family and close friends who are now walking the path of grief that is so difficult. My prayers are with you all

  6. I enjoyed teaching Chanel…she was an excellent student and even a better person! The world is a lesser place without her-I am very sad.

  7. Chanel was one of my closest friends in Jr. High where we attended school together. She was always such a kind soul and she was always smiling. I have very fond memories of her during those years. We parted ways in high school since we attended different schools but luckily we maintained contact. I am so very happy to have reconnected with her on facebook in the last few years. I loved watching her love for her family and for the Aggies within her FB posts. She will be missed. Please know that I am continuing my prayers for her family at this difficult time. May she rest in peace.

  8. We had the opportunity to meet Chanel and did enjoy visiting with her. She was warm kind and friendly. Wish, we could have spent more time with her.
    She is in the arms of God free from suffering and pain.
    May God give her family peace in comfort.
