I will be forever grateful for the opportunity given to me by Mr. Fleming to open Womble Carlyle's Charlotte office with him in 1984. We worked with so many wonderful people over the 11 years I was there. Bonnie, I remember working with you and Hass Parker at the reception to announce the opening -- was it at Discovery Place? And I also remember the many gifts you and Carlton brought me from your trips to Europe, especially the Godiva chocolates. He was always the epitomy of professionalism, yet he was kind enough to introduce me to his children and gracious enough to enjoy meeting mine. I learned so much about being a legal secretary from Carlton, but I was never able to get him to look at all his interoffice mail. He introduced me to many interesting people -- Johnny Jones, Hans Klaussner, Lonnie Burris, Duke Kimbrell to name a few. I had forgotten all of his accomplishments until I read his memorial online. My prayers will continue for you, the children and grandchildren that God will provide comfort, strength and peace for the days and weeks ahead. So thankful for your many wonderful memories.
