Charlene/Darlene and Families! I always smiled when I thought of your parents, and will continue to do so! My heart hurts for you both right now. The only solace, is your Mom and Dad are together again and will continue to watch over you all.

I hope as time heals, your great memories of this Great Lady (and your Dad) will make you smile. I have absolutely no doubt you will feel her close by when you need her the most. Until then, know that I am praying for you all!

Love you All,
Kelly Reynolds-Lawrence
