Leslie, Janet, Perry, Bruce, Hal, John, and all your family members, I am so very sorry to hear about Charlotte. She was a lovely, caring and funny woman who meant the world to my Mom. Matter of fact, both of your parents were great friends of Mom & Jim. They enjoyed so many fun times together! She loved all of you so much and was so proud of you and your families. May your happy memories of her comfort and sustain you and bring you peace today and in the days and years ahead.
