In your charity
If you are available to be present for the committal of the ashes with military honors for my father, please be at Tahoma National Cemetery by 12:45 pm on Wednesday, July 7, 2021. Soon after entering the gate on Veterans Memorial Drive, turn into the drive on the right to assemble for the procession. There will be people there to assist you.
We are thinking about a more standard memorial service in late August. This would be near what would have been my parents’ 70th wedding anniversary on August 25. Right now, we are still thinking about doing this. There is a lot going on for me to plan, to say the least.
If you wish to honor my father’s life, please consider a donation to the organization of your choice in my father’s memory, Robert R. Chapman, Sr. These organizations were important to my father:
- Shriner’s Hospitals for Children—St. Louis
- St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital
- National Multiple Sclerosis Society
Last words of my father
Get me washed and dressed. Today is my birthday. (pause) Tell everyone that I’m going home.
