General Feedback:


  "Hi Charlene,
I wanted to tell you about a prediction you made for me probably 2 yrs ago. My husband was about 92 and had dementia. Your prediction was he would leave the earth plane on a holiday, so I would not forget. (as if I could). You also said he would be about 95 when this happened. He transitioned on the 3rd of October, Rosh Hashanah, Jewish New Year, new beginnings for both of us and he was 94 and three quarters.
It was the time for him to leave, his body just wore out, no one thing really was diseased. It was a quiet passing, I miss him very much even though I know he is with me in spirit.
I just wanted you to know how right on you were. I was thinking 4th of July, my birthday, Christmas, but no a time so much more apropos to the event at hand."

"Wish I was closer - but if I ever get to the Carolina's I will look you up. I so appreciate all I have received from you - you readings are right on the mark and makes me think of my future choices....I am slowly listening to my angels and moving forward -- and so appreciate all you have done for me. I still have craziness in my life but have more "control" - (I really don't like that word) over the outcome because of my awareness from spending time with you.   I am enjoying life - as crazy as it is and making choices good for ME --- and letting others figure it out on their own. Thank you so much for being there - I am sure I will be in touch....and I am glad you are moving forward and taking care of yourself - open to the world's offerings!!!!!
Take care - will be in touch "

"Sable went to the vet yesterday to get the tubes out and the vet was so impressed on how well everything looked.  She couldn’t believe how much the incision had healed, especially considering what had happened to her.  She was floored.  I told Tommy it was because you and everyone else were sending extra healing energy to her.  He was skeptical…. Of course, I wasn’t.  I knew why she was doing so well so soon.  Thank you and everyone else for helping her.  She goes back next Saturday to get the rest of the stitches out.  She did not even need to wear the cone around her head to prevent scratching…. I will keep you posted.  Even the fur around the area is growing back quite a bit.  Sable is back to her old ornery self.  Thank you again."

"She did not elaborate any more other than you are here for me helping through and we have made great strides...together.  This is true Charlene and you do know that.  Your faith in me has been the key factor for me to starting regain faith, and hope along with letting go to a higher power.  Availing myself to what is here beside me in the way of support for a guardian angels.  Thank you for your letter today."

Granby, CT - September 29, 2000
