There are not enough words to tell you how sorry I am for your loss. Charlotte was a wonderful woman who could make a grey day turn sunny. She always had me laughing & wanting to go back for more of her jokes or stories that she had to tell. She was definitely one of a kind and will be missed, but don't worry she will always be looking down and making sure that everyone of you are staying in line. Just when you don't think she is there, there will be a reminder, it may be a song, a smell, or what someone else says....but she will be with each of you in a special way. God Bless & take care of each other.
