In Loving Memory Of CHARLENE M. ROWE July 1, 1926 – Dec. 28, 2008 Mom, as you spend your first birthday in heaven, I must reflect on our time together. Even as a little girl, I knew how special you were and how much I admired you. You were always there for me when I needed comfort or just someone to talk to. Even as the years went by and the care roles may have changed, you were always ready to lend a helping hand. I will always treasure your love and the memories of my childhood. Happy birthday to the best mom ever! Love, your “miracle child,” Mary Ann
