I got a chance to Know Charlotte through memories and stories that were shared with me through John and Martha Knupp and they were all wonderful stories. My thoughts are with all of you and including Sharon, Dick and Sandra and their families in the days that come. I see from this picture that her smile is enlighting.


Byron, Mary, Norman and families Thinking of you at this hard time.


I am so sorry for the loss of your mother. She was a very warm and caring person. Your Mom was my mother Mary Hoover Neilsen cousin. My brothers, sister and I spent time with the family when we all were very young.
