    I’ve known Charlene since junior high but we became especially close when we both attended Duchesne College. She was always a true friend and we stayed in touch ever since. The world has lost a ray of sunshine. RIP Charlene! Your suffering is finally over. Enjoy your new life.

    Charlene was such a kind, welcoming person. I met her at Duchesne College of the Sacred Heart. She was smart witty and made you feel like you were so special. May God grant all of you comfort. Her suffering has earned her a place in heaven. Rest in peace, Charlene. You have earned your eternal reward.

    I was saddened to hear today about the passing of Charlene. I will pray for her family in this time of sadness,but I will remember her laughter. When you get to heaven, she will be easy to find, just listen to the laughter, and go that way. She will be enjoying the company of friends.
