  1. Our sympathy goes out to Charlotte’s children and grandchildren. It has been many years since we have been in touch, But as a child I recall her frequent visits with Aunt Lottie
    and Uncle Will, and saw her often at Aunt Mattie Crahans. She and Margaret helped me
    put together some of the family history. For that I will be forever grateful. She was a
    really happy and thoughtful person and I know she will be missed.
    Sincerely, Suzanne Acker Place
