Mrs. Charlene was one of the most virtuous mothers I have known. The root of her heart, grounded in love, was available for all to see. Her respect for mankind was observable to everyone, including those who did not know her personally. I thank my God for every remembrance of her - a remembrance clearly shown through her husband, children and family.

I gratefully enjoyed and continue to enjoy other of Charlene traits, namely her artistic abilities. Charlene creatively engaged in producing her skills and talents, from cooking to wearable art (scarves). Thanks for including me in your life of giving, Charlene.

Thank you, Lord, for the gift of knowing and learning from Charlene. She gave the blessings you bestowed upon her to enrich the lives of others. Truly Charlene was a woman blessed to be a blessing. To Bro. Fred, children and family, thank you for sharing Charlene's love. May God's grace and peace rest upon you.
