Dear Aubrey and Cameron,
I am soooo sorry for the loss of your dear Mother. She was my college roommate and we kept in touch all these years. I had last talked to her this spring and I was amazed at how she took everything she was going through in such an upbeat attitude. I didn’t know that she was near the end of her battle with cancer. If there is any charity that you would want me to donate to or even a college fund for her grandson I would love to know your wishes. I would need an address as to where to send it. You are in my thoughts and prayers. Sincerely,
Trudy Ensminger

I am Charise's cousin. We grew up seeing each other on the Fourth of July at the Lowe Family Reunion. Charise was a couple of years older than I was, but she was one of the cousins that I always looked forward to seeing. I admired her athleticism which I couldn't match despite my efforts. She always had the greatest smile and an easy, genuine laugh. While I am sad that she has had such difficulties in her life and a struggle with cancer, I am heartened to know that she had love, friendship, children, and grandchildren to keep her smiling and laughing. I will always carry her warmth in my heart.

My deepest sympathy to the entire family. Charise was a much loved member of our Corry class of 1967. She will be missed by many. Charise possessed a kind soul and will make a terrific angel.
