    I remember Charlene from the seventh or eighth grade.  She was always a very attractive person.  I was usually able to make her laugh and she'd always call me names.  We hung out at Russo's hamburger restaurant on 14th Street in DA Heights. I will miss her a lot.  Best wishes to Sonny.  Brace up and keep moving forward.

    I remember Char. We were best buds all through High School and even after we had children.  

    She was happy and fun all the time. 

    My condolences to Ernie and family. 

    May she rest peacefully.
