    A truly exceptional Christian woman that we got to know over the last 2 years. We will miss our weekly visits with her. We know God has a new angel with Him now.

    After several wonderful visits with Patsy and Elaine’s “Aunt Charlene” at their home, I came to know her also as my “Aunt Charlene”. I am glad I got to know this very special and remarkable lady. Very independent and caring person. Conversations with her were enjoyable and I would have to make myself leave to go back to work. I loved this lady and I thank God for sharing her with me before taking her home. How Wonderful Heaven will be for this fine Christain Lady.

    Miss Charlene was a great help to us when ordering Bible School curriculum. She understood what we needed and just how to order it. After several years of our phone friendship, we were very impressed with her knowledge and dedication when she told us of her visual problems. She didn’t let that stand in her way of serving the Lord! We were introduced to her at the worship service in West Helena by her sister, Patsy. She was as delightful in person as on the phone. We know her family will miss her greatly but rest assured she is in God’s care. May He give all of you peace, comfort and strength.

    This lady will surely be missed. I loved her very much we spent time together when she lived in West Helena. Patsy and I even a few times visit her in TN. I always called her “Charley” she was so sweet to me. I know without a doubt she is resting in Heaven with our Heavenly Father and she can now see. Love you Charley
