Anyone who knew Charlotte could appreciate her "colorful" personality and incredible sense of humor. She lit up the room with her presence. Charlotte loved to read and debate any topic. Gifted in music, she played the piano and violin as well as danced. She enjoyed the Home Shopping Network so much that she kept them on speed dial. She could never pass up a beautiful piece of jewelry and her classy and fashionable style was second to none. Her love for her cats Foxy, Baby and Janie was immeasurable. She truly enjoyed the company of her mother and they often teased each other about who was taking care of whom. She is admired for her courage, strength and will to overcome a lifelong struggle with alcoholism stating, "I am determined to die sober for my kids." She fulfilled her lifetime dream of traveling to Africa with her mom and sisters to celebrate her 18 month milestone of being sober. This December she would have marked her fifth year of sobriety.
