Amazing Young Lady

Today we were at a memorial service of a young lady who was killed in a car accident on Feb. 2.
We got to know Charlene from our time volunteering at the chapel at West Edmonton Mall. To give you an understanding of the impact her life had. There was close to 1000 people in attendance at the service. The picture on the bottom is of young ladies that were a part of the youth group that Charlene served with in the church. She was in her second year of nursing and engaged to a young man she met 13 months ago.
If there is something good out of this her lungs went to a young man who would have passed away that weekend without a transplant
So sad, so young! And she looks and sounds like she was a very special person.

Well she will surely be missed and comforting for her loved ones that so many came to share with them. We can't understand so much of these sadnesses but try to trust that there is a greater plan.

So sad. She is so young. She touched a lot of people in her short life. Her death touches me in a lot of ways. My son is just a year younger than she was.

Cool picture.

So very sad. It seems she had a positive impact on so many people and will be fondly remembered. Organ donation is the one positive to come out of this.

So sorry for your loss. She was a lovely woman, that is very apparent. Organ donation is such a good idea, bless her heart.

Such a tragic story but of one life ending but on the other hand giving hope to another life

Heartbreaking, but what a legacy in so many ways for such a short life!

Charlene looks and sounds like a wonderful person, so sad to hear of her passing at such a tender age. my thoughts and prayers go out to her family and all you wonderful people who cared for her.

Such a sad story. Children should not die before their parents. At least someone gets a new life with her lungs.
posted February 13th, 2018  
Oh, this is so sad. I am glad that she somehow is living on through another young person.
posted February 13th, 2018

Sad story. At least part of her still lives in another person. Beautiful diptych to commemorate her passing away. May she rest in peace.

So very sad, Brian.

She sounds like an amazing young woman and although I'm sure she didn't plan this, her giving spirit is even evident in her death. It is very obvious that she will be missed but I do hope that each person she touched continues to reflect the impact she made on them. My thoughts and prayers are with everyone who knew her.
