Sending deepest sympathies from the entire Zendan Family. So sorry I will not be able to pay respects and share memories in person. Always enjoyed those occasions when the larger family of cousins and all was able to get together. Sincerely, Michael F. Zendan

Hello Bob & Family,

I went to look up Charlie's phone number yesterday to let her know that my Mom died in her sleep on Monday, and saw the news that Charlie passed away the day before. So very sorry to hear this - she was a great woman and a dear friend. I can only imagine the chuckle the two of them are having now over this coincidence in timing.

It was really great to be able to visit with you and Charlie a few months ago. It meant the world to my Mom to be able to spend that time together with you two.

Deepest condolences from all the Pellegrini's. Please give our love and hugs to everyone.

Call anytime - 603 254 6603

Barbara and I want to extend our deepest sympathies to you and to your family for your loss. It was apparent to me and to all who knew you at the time of your meeting that Charlene and you were soulmates in every sense of the word and your next 52 years together has simply reinforced that truth.
Our thoughts and prayers are with you now and we are here for you as friends forever.
