If you walked into a place as a stranger to Charlene you would definitely leave with a new friend. She lived and loved to the fullest. She was over the top. Made you laugh when you were down, told you things you didn’t want to hear at times (No Filter), first one to call and sing Happy Birthday on your special day (at midnight). She was 100% always and loved whole heartedly. If you knew her you couldn’t help but love her the same. She had so much strive for life to watch her kids and grandkids grow. She could be a little stubborn and strong willed at times about things but it was only meant because she loved us. God has really gained a strong angel. RIP Charlene until we meet again. “In her words instead of saying goodbye. LATER!”
