  2. My condolences and thoughts and prayers to Charlene’s Family. I just wanted to say what a wonderful woman she was. She had such an amazing personality. The laughs we had will be cherished for ever. The stories we shared and laughed about. I know she was so proud when she danced, and she was so proud that her mom sewed the dresses she danced in.
    Memories live on in our hearts, peace and love to the whole family, to her mother and her father, children, grand children, aunts, uncles, cousins.
    God bless you.
