Sweet Charlotte, from my earliest childhood memory, no matter the circumstance, you were always there for me, supporting, protecting, guiding, teaching & loving. Our bond as sisters was, and is, so strong that it can never be broken, even through your passing. Memories are precious and I have so very many to hold on to. I love, and have always, loved you and am heartbroken over losing you. I can't phone or drop by to see you anymore, but I can talk to you through my heart and somehow I know that you will hear me. At times I have felt you close by and that gives me comfort that you are still watching over your little sister. With all my love. Jenny

I was one of the media specialists who opened Dodgen MS and Charlotte took my place when I left. I loved that school and couldn't have left it to a lovelier person. My thoughts and prayers are with her family now.
