  1. I will always associate some of my fondest memories as a teen and young adult

    with Hank and Linda and the Charlifue home. Linda was always a gracious host and tolerated the invasion of her beautiful home by Dennis’ tight knit group of friends, myself included. The memory of her will always be a source of happy thoughts. My wife and I extend our sincere condolences to the Charlifue family Bless you.
