Charmaine was a Big part of our lives growing up. A Sunday School teacher to generations of kids and a good friend to all. The World was a much brighter place with her in it. Rest in Peace

We are so sad to lose such a wonderful friend. We will never forget her visits to our mother after she had her stroke. She was truly one amazing Christian lady, we loved her so much. Prayers for my dear friend, Cathy and her family.
