    Jennie- I was so sorry to read of your husband's death in the paper.I'll always remember both of you visiting our Merle Norman Studio on Canal St. and I always thought you were the loveliest couple. I am so glad you had so many wonderful years together. God bless you.

    Charlie and Jennie were patients of mine for 23 years before they moved to Virginia Beach. Our whole office was happy to see their names on the schedule. What a lovely couple! They were both a joy to be around. Jennie, you are in our thoughts and prayers and we will always remember Charlie fondly.
