Not sure what to say?

We were glad for the time we had with Charlie and will miss her.

Here is the umbrella/table setup that Charlie purchased for the Early Voting location in 2018. She spent almost every day greeting voters in Titusville.

Charleen was an important part of our team with the Brevard Dems in District 1

Here are some photos of Charleen and friends with Brevard Dems during 2018 elections.

I am truly blessed Charlie chose me to be her friend .

Best friends at the beach in Florida!
