Char has been my friend for over 40 years starting back in Cincinnati where we raised our families of all boys (Char’s 3 and my 4).
We made many wonderful memories over the years sharing fun times of vacations, Hilton Head spring break timeshare week, volunteers as Young Life adult sponsors with our husbands (Bill & Terry), family birthday parties and celebrations, holiday dinners, working at the same pre-school in Mariemont, doing Mary Kay Cosmetics, singing in the Billy Graham Choir as well as attending many Bible studies over the years.
We also shared the experience of having “late in life” babies (Grady and Andy). In 2007, Bill and I and Terry and Char started a new journey by moving to The Villages. We experienced wonderful memories once again, this time in Florida. We also lived in the same Village (the Village of Largo and the Village of Hemingway). Currently, we live 4 houses from each other.
Char has been a wonderful friend throughout the years. When my good husband Bill passed away in 2019, Char and Terry were always very supportive and caring. I appreciate the faithfulness and love. Char has a beautiful kind and caring heart. Her merciful attitude always shows empathy on every level to me and to others. She is a wonderful and full of faith Christian woman who loves worship music. She is my sweet and precious friend as well as to many ladies in The Villages. I love the fact that we find so much to talk about and always with much laughter.
Char, you are pretty on the outside and beautiful on the inside; I am proud to call you my friend.
Char, this is Gary Rogers, Founder of Check Your Game. I'm excited that my Mom (Jean) has Nominated you to be a part of our community. When people share their story like Jean has done, a part of our process is for those who shared their story to also Nominate 2+ people that they want to thank, acknowledge or encourage (easy online form). Here are a few things we want you to know about being Nominated and any next steps: We will not share this Nomination on social media, although it will remain on the Nominations page unless you tell us to take it down. Next, if you have interest in sharing your story like Jean did, we would love to get on a phone call or zoom to get to know you better, or just to simply to share about our process that includes: 1- sharing your story (online form), 2- receiving encouragement from others' comments on your profile as well as we make introductions to those who have commented, 3- recorded video (optional) and then, 4- the opportunity to nominate 2+ others (it's best to go through the process before you nominate so you can experience something we think is pretty cool and impactful to you and to others).
Feel free to connect with me @firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions or if you have interest in sharing your story right away, you can feel free to visit our online form. Go to the www.checkyourgame.com homepage and click on "share a story." All instructions are there with fill in the blank boxes, but we recommend you taking a look at the form and then typing your 2 answers on a Word Document first. Then come back when you are finished and cut and paste to the form along with the other pieces of information. All instructions are a part of that form. And of course, you are welcome to talk to Jean as well.
