  1. Gordon, Pam, Trish, Randy and Kendal, thank you so much for being my friends over years, 1972 was a long time ago. Over this amount of time we had spent many an ocassion together and I remember a lot of fun time spent at the house on Gladolia. We had shared in fun things and sad thru the years. Thanks for being a part of my life.

    I felt a big loss when I heard Charlen left us. I will truly miss Charlene, she was a beautiful caring and understanding women. She was one of a kind!

    I am thinking of all of you!

  2. It is still so hard to realize that our Nee Nee is gone. I would talk with her on the phone at least once a week, sometimes more. We had our laughs and our “secrets”. Talked with her the Tuesday before we lost her. She wanted more pictures of our Great Grandsons so she called for me to e-mail more. We always talked about her children, grandchildren and our children, grand and great grandchilren. What fun we had. She also told me they were hoping to come to Pueblo in the next few months. Nee Nee, you are here now but it is so hard to not have you in our life anymore, but we do have fun and precious memories. WE LOVE YOU SOOOO MUCH. Our love of God to
    Gordon, Pam, Eric, Randy, Laura, Kendall, Tricia, Randy and your grandchildren. Oh, how we will miss you but you are with your Lord now. Much love from

  3. Dear Pam and family,
    I share your sorrow over losing your mom. I’m so glad your mom and dad came to church so we could meet them, share the peace, and break bread together. You’ll treasure the red necklace always.
    Love, Peggy

  4. Words cannot express all that I have to say about Charlene and this wonderful family that I spent countless hours with talking, laughing, eating and riding around with during my teenage years. You all have made a significant impact on my life and I miss you dearly. Its hard to believe that our families have been intertwined for decades which makes this all the more harder to accept. May you all continue to find the love that has made your family very tight, and that made me feel accepted as one of your own. Our most sincere condolences to you all and may God fill your sails with cool breezes and the sun shine upon your faces forever more. With abundant respect and love for you all, Shawn
