Larry and family,
It,s been a year and I still can’t believe CHARMAINE is gone. I miss her phone calls to her auntie and wii remember fondly how she helped me through Uncle John’s ordeal. I am jealous she is with John but also happy. I pray for her intercession. Love you, Aunt Carol

I will never forget Charmains love of life. She loved every aspect of her life. The love for her two sons was so deep. Always talked about what they were doing in their life.
She loved being with her husband, Larry. I am so glad they both had a chance to do some traveling together in their retirement years.
Will never forget her!

Love Cindy
