I went to school at Fox with her. She was one of the sweetest classmate. I don’t think she ever said a bad word about anybody. To the family so sorry for your loss

Charlene & I were friends & coworkers. She always had a smile on her face no matter what she faced in life. She fought a long hard battle with grace & gratitude for everyday she had been given. You my friend have won the battle & heaven is your place of rest where the ugly cancer can no longer be found. I'm going to miss your sweet smile my friend. My thoughts & prayers are u with her family at this difficult time.
