    I am their taxman … normally a stressful hour while I prepare their taxes. I knew Charlene for maybe 15 years and can’t remember a time, even during that hour, when she didn’t have her lovely smile. I looked forward to seeing her every year. I know she will be missed by Al and her family but others like myself will miss Charlene too.
