Charlotte was the matriarch of the family instilling Christian Values and was influential in leading us to follow Christ.

She was a strong single mom raising three wild teenagers and wanted her children to be strong as well.

She encouraged us to be the best we could be and not settle for anything less.

She wanted us to do better than she did and wanted us all to go to college.

She loved her grandkids and great grandkids.

They were her favorites.

She always had snacks and goodies for them when they visited. She was a Sunday School Teacher, Church volunteer and had a love for Christ.

At the end of her journey here on earth, she met several people in different facilities she was in and her children believe that’s why she was still here on earth because she needed to finish her journey sharing Christ.
