I worked in the same area Charlotte did at Eastman and she was always a very friendly and happy person. It was a pleasure to know her and I am sure she will be missed greatly. Reading about her love for the Lord and her husband Bob, whom I also knew and respected, was a statement about a life well lived. May the presence of the Lord be in your presence as you celebrate her life.
