    It was a pleasure to have Charlene as my neighbor for the last 2 years. It was always nice to stop and chat with her or hear a k nock at my door to be greeted by her checking in on me and asking about my mom who has been in a nursing home. Charlene will be dearly missed.
    My thoughts and prayers are with Charlene’s family and friends for the loss of such a great lady!

    Our family is praying that you have peace during this difficult time. God will provide Charlene with a place in his kingdom now and she will forever watch over and and keep her family protected with her eternal love.
