    Charlie, you’ve gone ‘Home’ and are with Jerome and your sons and all those who have gone before you. I know you’re at peace, happy and surrounded by indescribable love. We’ll all be there with you sooner than most of us think. God Bless You…

    I love you, my friend.

    Austin TexasOllie & I had the privilege of meeting Charlotte afew years back when she first came to Texas with Ollie’s cousin, John Johnson.
    Charlotte & John would stop in Austin for a visit while traveling to or from Mission, TX. as Snow Birds from ND
    . We were able to spend several days in Mission with them for a visit. Charlotte was a lovely hostess and made us feel most welcome.
    We’ve seen her in Fargo in the pasted, while visiting Ollie’s family, too.
    We will both miss her in Texas. She had such a zest for life, but she can now rest and receive her heavenly reward!

    I was saddened to hear of the death of “Charlie”. I had the pleasure of working with her during my years at Prairie Public.

    She was a great person – full of positive energy and kindness. It was an honor to know her.

    My condolences to her family and friends.
