  1. I remember well the Charred Oak as my late-husband, Tom Sheldon and his-family knew a good steakhouse when we found it; Charred Oak was tops. Any restaurant owned and run by a member of the Key family was that. Thank you for many great-meals. There isn’t one near Stillwater to compare. Grieve-as-you must, not-as-others will tell you is right, wrong or indifferent. Travel the new-pathway our Lord has for each as there are no-pathways, each has their-own individual one. May He bless you greatly! I cannot keep up with anyone or anything since my-child, grandchildren, and great-grandones moved me here to be near them at my-choice also.
