This is a lady that will be "missed", we are so sorry to hear of her passing. I knew Char way back in Camden High. She was always so sweet to me, (a newcomber), and I will always remember her beauty and loveing way.

Char will be missed dearly. We so enjoyed the time we spent with them while they were here in Florida year after year. She was always so pleasant, never saying a bad word about anyone. I am glad for her that she got to go home and see her loved ones before she went on her final journey. She is in no more pain, and for that we should all be thankful. May the wonderful memories that each family member has, keep her forever close in your hearts. She was a very special lady and will be missed. God bless you Pat and Newt, Lord knows its not going to be easy without her. We are here if you need anything.

We had the pleasure of meeting both Char & Newt on a cruise and at the Jeror residents. Such a wonderful couple, very sad Newt to hear about Char. Our loved ones leave the world but they never leave our hearts. Char is a part of every family member and how you see the world. My wish for you is that you find comfort in the gifts of memories and love she gave you and the love and support your friends will give you.
