So sorry to hear of Charlene's passing. I am so grateful for all Bernard &Charlene did for me. I started working for them at the Sweet Tooth in Swisher and when they wanted to retire from the business they offered to sell it to me. I ran the Sweet Tooth for 10 years. I loved my business and that's where I met my husband. So I am forever grateful to the Lowe family. I'll also never forget walking into their garage in Swisher and seeing Wilton cake pans covering the wall.Charlene was a great cook and baker,she will be missed! My heart goes out to all the family it's not easy losing your mom. Love to everyone you're in my prayers. Thank you for everything Charlene maybe you and mom can do some cooking in heaven!!
