Jan and Judy and families, You have my deepest sympathy with the passing of a great lady. I have such fond and happy memories of Charlotte when we were getting ready for Steph and Brian's Wedding. We had soooo much fun she and I and all of you. She was such a talented and creative lady, but you know how happy she is because she is finally back with Mike again as she loved him so much. You are all in my prayers.
Sending my thoughts and prayers to you all. Mike was our rural route mail carrier for years. May the peace that only comes from Jesus be with you all.
