    A beautiful wildflower was plucked from the earth and sent sailing with the angels to Heaven. Always loved and will be deeply missed but never forgotten.

    Oh no. I was a teacher’s aide at South Fork, Missouri when Charley was in the second grade. She was such a sweetheart. She was always my little helper. She has grown into a beautiful young lady. I am so sorry for your loss. My heart breaks for you all. Laura Pendergrass. She called me Ms. Laura
