Charlotte, you will be missed more than you can imagine. Sanjay celebrated your life yesterday in a beautiful and moving Hindu ceremony. It was obvious to anyone who knew both you and Sanjay that your love for each other was deep and everlasting. May you both meet again one day in eternal paradise.

In the passing of Charlotte, Staten Island lost a true activist who stood there championing the cause when something is not right. She has a passion for nature and admiration for her pet chickens whom she treated like her own babies, and took such a good care of them. Between Charlotte and Sanjay, who were made for each other as they truly loved every thing they have done together.

As a CPA, she never hesitated to provide professional help to anyone . Charlotte's great strength comes from the way she took it calmly and with ease, her difficult journey with her health.
In Charlotte, we lost a caring soul and kind hearted person who always appreciated simple things in life. We pray her beautiful soul to rest in peace and may God Bless Her. Deepest sympathy to Sanjay at this difficult time.

I last saw Charlotte when she came to vote in the NYS primary in late June. This Staten Island activist would not be deterred in doing the right thing, even with physical limitations. Charlotte loved the simplicity and beauty of the natural world. She shared her reverence and knowledge with us, her neighbors and Mt. Manresa associates. I recall the jar of honey she gave me from her hive. Charlotte and Sanjay were generous to all and exuded dignity and competence. I will think of Charlotte as I feed the birds on my deck. She is at one with the earth she loved. Sanjay and family we send our deepest condolences and love. Until we meet again...

Dear Charlotte, you left us too soon. We will miss you. I won't forget how proud you were of your chickens and how proud you were of building that solar heated pond and the garden in the back of the house with all it's herbs. Love forever.
Rest in power.
