Chuck, Denise and family,
I want to share my condolences with you for the loss you are feeling today. You all are in my families prayers and we will continue to lift you up in the coming days. By putting our faith in GOD we can see her again. Remember Proverbs 3:5&6 as you going forward.
From her obituary I'm sure she was a wonderful lady that I would have enjoyed meeting. GOD Bless you!
