My mother in law loved to feed me!! When Dawn & our family visited she always made sure we left FULL. My favorite memory was of her camping with us in the summer. She will be missed for her many reasons but mostly for her spirit of giving & dedication to her family.

My sincere condolences to Char's family. I had the pleasure to work with Char for a few years. Always had a smile and would drop everything to help someone out. She will be missed-what a wonderful and caring person. Don't find too many like Char. God bless you and your family. You are now in a better place without the pain and suffering.
