Mathews, Charlie Mae

CharlieMae “Perhaps you sent a lovely card or sat quietly in a chair. Perhaps you sent a floral piece, if so, she saw it there. Perhaps you spoke the kindest words, as any friend could say, perhaps you were not there at all, just thought of us that day. Whatever you did to console our hearts, We thank you so much.” – The Family
