    We are so sorry to hear about Char’s passing. Did you know Ted is her Uncle by only one year (older) ? She was friendly to me and would sit by me when there was a group, and would talk to me always. We were really happy to know her.
    My heart is with you and your family!

    Char was a warm caring woman who always had a smile on her face and kind words to say. We were blessed to know her. Our condolences to her family.

    I am so sorry to hear of Char’s passing. She and Paul were such wonderful friends to my parents, Erv and Jenny Hanson. She always had a smile on her face and opened her home to me many times on my various trips to Michigan. She adored all her children and wanted only the best for each of them. Her grandchildren were her delight and she talked of them often when I would visit her. I always felt so at home when I visited her and Paul. I will miss her and I hope and pray that her family will always remember how much she loved and cared for them. Focus now on the good times you had with her and be grateful for them. Sending you all my love and prayers.

    She was such a wonderful person. Always smiling. Took care of everyone she knew. Hard worker. I will miss her. Was married to a cousin of mine. IAM glad to have known her prayers for her family. It is hard to loose someone so dear.

    I am so sorry to hear of Char’s passing. I worked in maintenance and enjoyed seeing her every day at Shopko. She always had a smile on her face and so friendly to everyone.
