So after school pictures were taken i cut it all off. Everytime i see my 9th grade picture I laugh and think of Char. She will be missed by many.

    My sincere sympathy to Char Les’s entire family. Fond memories come to mind as I think back to the “Class of ’62” and times shared with Char Les! May the love of family and friends be a source of comfort to you at this time. Love lives on~~

    My condolences to the family of Char Les , We were friends in school even rode the same bus. We share relatives. Her mom was the sister of one of my uncle (Bill) so she was mentioned a lot. I got a letter from her not to long ago and will treasure her message. Barbara
