TO THE FAMILY OF CHARLENE, WENT TO SCHOOL WITH HER AND WAS SO SORRY WHEN I FOUND OUT SHE WAS SICK AND NOW PASSED AWAY. I SEND MY SINCERE SYMPATHY TO THE FAMILY, ESP. THE GRANDKIDS. MAY GOD BLESS AND EASE YOUR PAIN AND LOFF. BARB JONES
So sorry Brandi. Praying that God will comfort you through your family’s loss.
I am so sorry to hear that Charlene has passed. In the short time that I knew her, she made a huge impact on me. What a wonderful and caring person. It was nice knowing that the world is so big, yet so small. Who would have ever thought that her family and mine grew up together and we didn’t know each other until I became her nurse. What a wonderful family Charlene has!!
To my Friend and her family. I am praying that God will comfort you. In Char’s life she made an impact on a lot of people,including me. She was a friend and a sister when we were growing up. I will truly miss her. I think we will meet again someday and I thank God for that.
Love and God’s Blessings Brenda and JIm
Charlene was such a gentle soul. She made me a better person knowing her. I smile when I think of how many times I copied her homework in high school…I will miss her. My heartfelt condolences to her family.
Sheila, Jeff and Bob…..Rick and I are so sorry to hear about the loss of your mother and sister. We will keep you in our thoughts and prayers. God Bless!
To the rest of my family, my grandma was one of the strongest people I have ever been blessed to find in my life. She has always been here for me throughout my entire living. Whenever I was down or needed help, she always knew how to make it better. I have been very lucky to have a grandmother as amazing as she was. I have very high hopes that she is watching over my entire family and keeping us safe as she always has. I love you grandma.
We are so sorry to hear about Charlene’s passing. She was everyone’s true friend. We will miss her, but glad she is now at peace. Our condolences to Sheila and Char’s immediate family.
I write this with a very heavy heart,(Charlie) as I always called her was my best friend and I will miss her dearly. She made me promise to remember the fun times and she did;nt want us to tarnish our memories of the end. I loved her with all my heart and will forever hold her there as one of the best friends a person could have… Bless your Family for you have truly lost a angel..
To Charlene’s family:
I’m so sorry to see that Char has passed on. We were such good friends during high school. It was good to see her at our last class reunion and catch up on each other’s lives. God Bless all the family. Love and prayers. Muriel Johnson
