Rob, Cindy, Catherine and Caroline: Just want you to know that I am thinking of you all at this time. Aunt Charlotte was very special to me and more like an older sister than an Aunt. I am not going to be able to get to Ohio for her funeral but my prayers are with you.

Catherine, Carolyn & Rob, we're so sorry for your loss. The 1st Christmas card we'd get every year was from your Mom & Dad. If you need anything, please stop down...... Love and prayers to you. That same day 5 years ago we lost my Mom.

Charlotte was a dear person, friend and high school class mate . She and I were two of the last of our class to find mates. We would at times find ourselves, mostly in Mount Vernon, just hanging out and talking. It did not hurt any that I was from the big city of Mount Liberty also. She was a beautiful girl and I feel privileged to have had her in my life. She will be missed but we will celebrate having her as a friend. Cloyd Yough

We are so sad to learn of the passing of Charlotte. A fun, feisty, friend--she's been an asset to our church, our neighborhood, and the whole community will feel the loss. We have enjoyed being neighbors, and we now lift the whole family up into God's healing light.

Charlotte and I were classmates, went to the same church (Milford) and graduated together. She was a dear classmate and will be dearly missed. My sincere sympathy to her children and family.
