    Linda, I am very saddened to hear of your Mom’s passing. I truly enjoyed her boundless lust for life and I hope to be like her when I grow up! I will never forget her voice. I loved to listen to her talk. She was without a doubt one of my “favorite people”. She so loved people and had a compassion for helping others. God now has an angel to supervise all the other angels! She will truly be missed!
    Love to you and your sister!

    Linda, thank you so much for the wonderful post. Mom always thought the world of you and I know I’ll carry on her “loudness” because I have already for 50+ years. haha She was definitely one of a kind and many people said she was a “favorite” and I understand why. I miss seeing you and hope all is well.

    So sorry for your loss. She was one of my favorite people to run into because she always made you feel like no time had passed since you seen her last, just always full of joy. My favorite childhood memory is when you guy’s came to California and went to all of those theme parks, what a blast we had every day. I know hard this time is for you, but if you need anything, please don’t hesitate to message me. All my love to you both.

    Thanks, Darren. Long time no see. Hope all is well with you. I remember that trip out west almost like it was yesterday. We had our German Oma with us on that trip and it was one of my favorite early teen years memories too (I think I was 13). You were just the cutest kid! Yes, it is a very hard time and you’ve been in our shoes too. It’s never easy and mom will be missed by so many, but especially Angela and me. Hope to see you sonetime and love you back.

    Dear Linda and Angela,
    What a special lady your mom was. I can close my eyes and hear her warm laugh and her wonderful accent. When I think about your mom, I remember being a kid and growing up in St. John’s on Dickson Street. What a great time that was. Your mom was so full of joy–she always had a smile to share. She was truly a blessing to all who know her. Miss Charlotte will be greatly missed.
    May God’s Loving Grace Bring You Peace, Stacey

    My sympathy goes out to Linda and Angela in the loss of your mom. I have such great memories of her from when I lived in Greenland. My husband, Cecil McCoy worked with her for years at AAF! We would have such fun at company get togethers! On Saturdays, your mom would walk to the p.o. and as she would be approaching our house, she would be yelling, “Cecil, where are you”?!? Of course she never did anything quietly!!!! Her smile, laugh and sense of humor was infectious! Such a beautiful person inside and out! Hold on to all those beautiful memories you have! Your dad’s peace and quiet is over bet they are having quite a reunion! God bless you both…
