I will be praying for your family in the days ahead. Sincerely your other daughter, Terry!

  7. I was so sadden to hear about CC Pops being called home this pass Sunday. He was such a funny, kind, caring man. We were all so lucky to have him apart of our lives. I have so many memories of times at the Chamberlayne’s visiting with Terria and hilarious moments that I will carry with me forever. Mrs. Gwen always had a smirk on her face shaking her head at CC Pops and of course he always had something funny to say 🙂 I will truly miss “Come here baby, give me a hug”. He was hugger for sure 🙂 So many great times at the Chamberlaynes between bingo, domino’s, cards, learning how to drive, laughs and giggles while watching TV. He loved his family greatly and I send my sincere condolences to Terria, Alexis and the whole Chamberlayne family. We will miss him.
