John & Family,

My fondness memories of Charlotte is her smiles and laughter when us kids would yell back and forth across the road at each other. No matter what we did she always had a kind word. I will miss her dearly and I know my Mom Imogene Roebuck had tears when I told her the news. My Mom always enjoyed her talks with Charlotte and John. Our prayers and hugs are with you all.

John,
So sorry for the loss of Char! She was such a sweet, kind person. The first time we met her it was like we had known her all our lives. She made our high school reunions so much fun. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

I was deeply saddened to hear of Char's passing. We were acquainted in high school and reconnected 10 years ago when she and John came to Las Vegas. They met me and my family for a 3 hour dinner where we caught each other up on our lives. We stayed in touch through the years on Facebook and shared a wonderful friendship. I know she is with our Lord and pain free, but she will truly be missed by all who loved her.
