I must say that Rose beat her with the photo collections. Charlene loved to ride motorcycles, collect trinkets, for each one represented a special meaning. She would spend her days relaxing, watching television, listening to music, playing numerous games and loving on her great-grandsons, Trae and little Jason, whenever she had the opportunity to return to her home in California.

  • I would like to extend my sincerest condolences to the Young family during this difficult time. The pain of death causes a pain weighs so heavily on the heart. This is not God’s will. Our Heavenly Father gave us life as a gift and would not just snatch it away from us. It is only because of the rebellion in the garden Eden that death has a grip on us. That is why Our Heavenly Father promises in Isaiah 25:8: ” He will swallow up death forever, and the Sovereign Lord Jehovah will wipe away the tears from all faces.” We can look forward to replacing pain and sorrow with joy and happiness as we welcome our dead love ones back. Acts 24:15. Until then may you continue to find strength and comfort from God, family and friends.
