So very sorry to hear of Charlotte's passing. She was a unique woman I am so glad to have known. So many great memories from sitting at her kitchen table surrounded by people from everywhere and every walk of life and she welcomed each and every one with hot coffee. I may not have been around lately, but Charlotte and Pete influenced my life much farther than the common interests we shared. Their positive outlooks are clearly evident in their children, who they loved more than anything. So many, many memories. You were lucky to have had such great parents. Best wishes.
