Dear Byron and Family,
Please know that Tom and I are so sad to hear of Char's passing. We know she is at peace now, and we hope you can find some peace in knowing she is at rest. We have known Char for over 20 years. I don't think there is a more beautiful, caring person. She was so down to earth and real. Her humor, intelligence, and beauty will always be in our minds. She was a great neighbor and friend. Our deepest sympathy is extended to all family members, near and far. We are so sorry.

Charlotte Liske was without a doubt the
most beautiful and friendliest person that I have ever met. She had a most pro-

heart is truly saddend by her death at such an early time. She will certainly and truly be missed by all who knew her. My thoughts and prayers are with you all, Liske family, Via con Dios, my very dear friend.

I grew to know Char the last several years of her life; she was always alert and was sure to communicate with Byron & I if we talked about the finances wrong. Char loved sports always watching them on the TV and expressing her disapproval if the call was wrong.
My prayers and thoughts are with the family.
