    Jennifer, Charlotte, and Family: I am a co worker with Denean Peace at AT&T. I think the world of Denean and I wanted to let you know that many people are praying for you and Charlotte during your time of loss. May God hold you up during this time of grief and may it continue to ease up as the days progress. Charlotte will be a huge part of the healing process, I just feel that in my heart. She will light up your days and help to keep you strong because she needs your love and courage as she grows into that amazing person that both you and Gary would want. Charlotte will be Gary's light to shine on for years to come. May God bless you all! My Deepest sympathy. Patrick
