Steve, I was so sorry to read of the passing of your mother. My deepest sympathy, and prayers for peace, go out to you and your family.

Charlotte was very kind to my mother while in assisted living. She cared deeply for those she ministered to and went out of her way to check on them when they were not well. I am very grateful for the difference she made in my mothers life. Praying for the family...may you all be comforted by the knowledge of the joy that now surrounds her, and the glorious reunion to come.
