Mr. Russ, words cannot express how sorry I am for your loss. I absolutely adored her. She was always pleasant and made me feel comfortable. I will miss seeing her and chatting with her. She is and always will be an amazing person.

I am so sorry this has happened. Charlotte was a lot of fun. We worked together for several years. She was smart, funny and a kind person. Everyone loved her. She loved her family and especially the kids, the two legged kind and her 4 legged kind. She loved her husband and looked forward to every other week when the grandkids would be there and their vacations. She has gone too soon. I know she missed her Mom and is seeing her now. Prayers for her Dad as he is still here. Prays for Tommy and the kids as well. Charlotte, fly high my friend. Elizabeth Oliver
