Always a great attitude. The sweetest moment I remember was when George introduced her to the audience at a Senior Games performance as his 'Calendar Girl,' after singing the song. Her tears were so heart warming; I think the applause was as much for Charlotte as for George. Prayers for all the family, especially George.

Since I can remember I prayed this time would never come. You not only taught me how to make clay flower earrings and helped me memorize multiplication, you taught me to love with my whole heart and the imagination is a beautiful thing. You put your heart into everything around you, from loving the family, your crafts, your gardening, your birds, your dolls and other collectibles. Sitting in the back pew at church with you and pawpaw doing multiplication and playing tic tac toe and getting to wear your cowgirl hats are only a few memories I will cherish forever. I miss you so much! I love you Mawmaw
Love- Destiny

My thoughts and prayers go out to George, the Children and Grandchildren. Charlotte was such a blessing. Through all her health situations these last years she remained positive and her sweet self. I always enjoyed her company. She was a very pleasant person to be around. I will see her again in heaven.
