    Our sympathy to you Terry and your family. I hadn’t seen Charlotte for many many years but looking at her picture, she didnt change much. I used to fix her hair in the mid-60s at a shop on North Bell. She had a wonderful personality and a great sense of humor. I’m certain she’ll be missed by many. Blessings to you all. Sonja and Dave Bauers

    I was on staff with Char at Fullerton Magnet School. I so enjoyed eating lunch with her each day. From our conversations, I knew how much she loved her family. In one of our conversations, she spoke highly of her internist. As I was searching for a new doctor, I gave your family’s doctor a try and have always been grateful. I also remember the beautiful flowers and surprise lunches Terry sometimes brought to Char. Thank you for sharing Char’s memorial service online.

    Allison and Tom, I’m sorry to hear the news. Sending you love as you learn to navigate without your mom.

    My thoughts are with you, especially if I remember the correct Tom as his preschool teacher in 1974-75. Tom and his mother made me large ceramic A and Z with Tom Bentley printed underneath the letters. My maiden name is BENTLEY and Tom was my only student whose name was BENTLEY after teaching 22 years. My preschool teaching was at St. Luke Methodist Church for just the one year and a first and second grade teacher until 1996.
