Charlene was a beautiful lady that was taken too soon with complications of dementia. She was a professional in the business world, as well as, one filled with so much love for her family, friends and fur babies. She was a ray of sunshine to all who knew her. We will grieve and sometimes cry but in time, we will laugh about all the funny memories that were made in the past 47 years. In the end, we know that God added another angel to his band. Now, you are rejoicing in your new Heavenly home with no more pain and suffering. That brings some comfort to us but we will always love you and you will never be forgotten. Our sweet Charlene, one day we will meet you on the other side. What a glorious day that will be. Fly High our little ray of sunshine. Love Jackie and the family
