God Bless you and your family. I am so sorry for you loss and I am here for you all if you need anything. It was such a pleasure to meet all of you and to take care of your precious sister. I fell in love with her. She was such a sweet lady and I am so thankful that I met her.

I am so sorry for your loss of your dear sister. Charlotte was a blessing to have met and taken care of. I said from the very first day that I met her that she was "precious" and she truely was!! Sometimes in the nursing profession, you can lose sight of why you became a nurse, and God realizes this and every now and again, he places people in your life that make you realize you are walking the right path and you are doing what he has intended for you to do, and meeting all of you and Charlotte was God's way of showing me where I belong! I love each and every one of you and I will keep your family in my prayers!! Love, Kim Rash

Betty and family I was so sorry to hear of Charlotte's passing, she was so sweet to everyone and always had that pretty smile on her face. I admired her so much for the way she dealt with her illness. I never heard her complain about anything. Charlotte will be missed by everyone who knew her, but we know that we will see her again one day. Betty your family has always been special to me and the only reason that I'm not there is that I had to have surgery on my neck and I'm very limited right now the Dr.won't let me drive or do much of anything.Betty I love your whole family and will be praying for all of you.

I am sorry to hear of Charlotte's passing. I hadn't seen her in quite a few years, but she was always a shining light and smile you could count on when she appeared. I feel my life was blessed just to know this sweet girl. All her family will be in my prayers that God help ease you through this loss.

That is such a good picture of her, and I'm knowing in my heart that is what she looks like now, in heaven. Charlotte touched all of our hearts and it was such a blessing to us to have known her. She was so sweet, so strong, so funny (we had soooo many good times together) and she will never be forgotten, we are all better people having known her. She was a very special lady. God bless you all — be strong for Charlotte.
