I think of Mrs. Chaffin often. She was a favorite teacher of mine. I have so many memories or cooking in her class, learning how to sew, and working with our little community. She was always soft spoken, and most usually had a smile - unless our class was particularly naughty which sometimes we were.
Mrs. Chaffin was a sweet lady that will truly be missed. Heaven gained an angel.
Much love and prayers,
