I am just now seeing this about your loss of your sweet, sweet Mom. My Mom and Dad lived down the street from them and I loved your sweet, spunky Mother. While I was staying with them snd taking care of them, Carl and Charlene would come down and visit and I just fell in love with them. I am so sorry to hear of her passing.God be with y’all and bless you during this time of sorrow. She is happy now that she is with Carl again.
Charlene & Carl were good friends to my Parents, B.B. and Bernice Wamble, when they were still here. I am so sorry for your loss, prayers for comfort to your and your family.
To Brien, Chris and the entire Fox family, you have my sincere prayers and condolences. I will always cherish the fun times I had with Charlene, she will truly be missed. Sincerely Shiirl Minor
Debbie, Gary and Johnny, Iâ€™m so sorry to see youâ€™ve lost your sweet mother. She was a special lady and one of our Circle Drive favorites. Memories flooded back of kick the can under the street light at the corner. And all our moms calling us home almost in unison. Praying for your family as you grieve her loss. Much love!
So sorry for your loss. Lived down the street from them for many years.
Charlene was a very sweet woman. I enjoyed going to church with her. She was so much fun to be around. She loved her family very much. She loved my family too!
Aunt Charlene is with her most precious Mother, and her sister, Lavern, and my Mother Margaret most people new as Evelyn. I had a motorcycle wreck when I was 15, Mam Maw (Bessie) their Mother left aunt Charlene and came to live with us in Memphis for a couple of months. I was in a body cast and could not take care of myself, Mam Maw cleaned me up like a baby without 1 complaint. I'll never forget that, Aunt Charlene had the same heart she would do anything to help that she could. I just always felt loved when she was around! I spent summers with them when I was a kid the food, the fun I could go on and on. I have missed her ever since I grew up. I wish we had spent more time together. If there is an upside to this it will be when we are all together again.
She was a very nice lady to me. Sorry for your loss.
Prayers for the family of Charlene Fox. Gary and Johnny and Connie Fox. I did not know their mother but I worked with Connie. Funeral Home. If Connie asks please share my email address. I have lost touch with her.
I love you Memaw! Iâ€™m sure going to miss you. You always made the best homemade biscuits and Iâ€™m blessed that you shared that recipe with me and taught me to make them. You were the best grandma a girl could ask for and the best great grandma to my Emery. Not a day will go by that we donâ€™t think of you and Papaw!! We will see each other again one day. But now youâ€™re not in pain or sick anymore, you have your memory full restored and you are with Papaw; and now you can look down on us and always be a guardian angel to us and to Emery. I love you!
My deepest condolences on the loss of y'all's loved one. I remember growing up in Osceola, spending a lot of time at Charlene's house. She always had coffee and a desert. To this day we are still using Charlene's pecan pie recipe. It took years of begging before Charlene finally relented and gave us the recipe! Some of my fondest childhood memories were spent at Charlene's house.
