How to help

Share your thoughts and prayers with the Chapman family here:

I've been reading through the thousands of comments and found SO many kind words. It's an amazing tribute to the Chapman family, and to Maria.

This was one of my favorite pieces that someone wrote:

The stroke of midnight came too soon.

The grand ball came to an expected and unexplainable close for your
Cinderella. And like the story-book Cinderella, the magic came to an end,
but in a different way.

Your Cinderella exchanged her beautiful gown, not for common clothes, but
for a spotless, white robe.

Her glass slippers for a street paved with gold.

Her tuxedoed attendants for a host of saints and a chorus of angels.

Her distant prince for the ever-present Prince of Peace.

Her bejeweled chariot for a heavenly mansion prepared since the foundation
of the world.

And she exchanged her gleaming white horses for the reality that she never
needs to rush off again - she is now home.

Really, the grand ball came to a close for those left behind. But for
Cinderella it is just beginning.

In lieu of flowers, the Chapmans request any gifts be directed to Shaohannah’s Hope.

Thanks for posting about this... I was just heart-sick when I heard about it. I can't imagine how Maria's big brother feels right now. Oh my.
