The family wants to express their gratitude of Hazel Gossom and Vernon Bramley for the last 13 years for taking care of Roland and Charlotte. They have been at their sides and have always done an amazing job. They are like family and we can’t thank them enough.
Charlotte was an amazing woman. She would give anyone the shirt off her back and always done for others before she did for herself. She was a woman you couldn’t carry on a conversation with without laughing regardless of how she felt. She liked to make people laugh.
She was loved and will be missed by so many people.
The family wants to thank everyone who either took their time to call her or came to see her.
