    I’m am so sorry to hear this news. I had the great pleasure of working with Mr Chancery in Atmore. He was a top notch Supervisor. To have worked in the grocery store business as many years as he had…, you would ever had never known it! Most people in the grocery store business get tired of that type of environment, he was the exception! He LOVED his job and and the public he served. I had nothing but RESPECT for him!
    So Sorry for your loss. My thoughts and prayers are with his family at this time. God gave a GREAT ANGEL HIS WINGS!
