I met Charlotte in the mid-1990s while we were both active volunteers for University Youth Shelter (which later became a program of ROOTS). Through her tireless work and uncommon dedication and reliability, she was the very definition of the type of volunteer who enabled the program at that time to regularly provide overnight shelter to 20-30 homeless teens and young adults each night, with no paid staff and no budget beyond in-kind donations of basic items (including donations Charlotte rounded up herself). She went beyond hard work, though, to share the bright light of her warm personality and her keen listening abilities with the youth we served, many of whom looked to her as the rare grandmotherly figure in their difficult lives. I knew very little about Charlotte's life away from the shelter until I read her obituary; it's clear that her passing must be deeply felt by her loved ones. My condolences to Charlotte's family. I will remember her always in a sunlit church basement in the morning, after shelter, holding a broom and dutifully sweeping up after the just-departed kids she cared for so much, happy as a clam.

My favorite girl in high school was Charlotte Erickson from Preston. Her family and my family were very close and we got along great. Her father Charlie ran the Preston Mill for a lot of years and her brother Jim was a good friend to both Russ and me. Charlie had a new Buick he let me borrow when I took Charlotte out, so I wanted to take her out a lot. I took her to Senior Prom and we had a great time. Charlie was really a great guy. He used to load up his kids in that Buick and then pick up my brother Russ and me and take us all to the movies in Issaquah. Sometimes the Bergstrom kids and my sister JoAnne came along too.

I'm thankful for all the time we spent together as children and young adults; the blackberry picking, roller skating, exploring and secret sharing. I also enjoyed the times we spoke on the phone in our later years. She was a very special person in my life. I send my regards to her family. Goodbye, my friend.
