    Melissa & family, my heart aches for you all with the loss of your mother. I know in my heart that heaven has a new angel who will brighten the pearly gates as she enters with that big smile of hers. I hope her wings will be decorated accordingly. If not I am sure she will take care of it.

    Aloha, gigi dj.

    To the Long family, my sympathy goes out to all of you as you go through this time of loss. You all were so blessed to have had Charlene as a family member. I pray for comfort and peace for each of you. To know Charlene, you had to love her. She brought a ray of sunshine into any room. Her laughter alone made you smile. She will be greatly missed. But know she was a very loved and cherished person here on earth. And I know we have an amazing heavenly angel now to watch over us. God Bless!
