You were amazing and so funny! I loved you from the day I started caring for you! You remind me of my own grandma; in personality, looks, and the way you cared for me also. (And she was from Arkansas to top it off)
I was deeply saddened by the news because the last day I saw you was the last day caring for you and we both just cried. I’m sorry I didn’t come see you after I left, but I thought about you daily. I love and miss you my Charlotte and I’ll always remember you!
Love (your girl) Amanda
