"I still miss Charlotte so much!  I am thrilled though that many gave to the NICU  rooming in fund so that a memorial plaque could be placed in her honor.  I know this would please her.  Her legacy lives on both through the giving and through lessons learned from her.  So much of me comes from what I learned from her.  To quote the words from the song "For Good", "because I knew you, I have been changed for good"."

"Today as part of our vacation, I sampled some wine at a castle winery.  My first thought was, "I must get some of this for Charlotte". I know she would have loved it.  How I wish we could share a glass today.  But the wine we taste in Heaven will be like none we have ever had.  I'm reminded that the wine is a symbol of His blood which paved the way for our eternal redemption.  Til then...."

I will always remember your kind hearted and generous service.  You open your home for me to stay overnight when I had breast cancer and let my friends pick me up at your house to go to chemo because it was so close to the clinic.  You show compassion to others even when you are hurting.  You have touched so many people lives."

"I literally owe Charlotte my life. She brought air to my lungs with her magical and precious touch. Although, I don't remember my birth per say, she made a great impression on me from day one. Luckily her precious Amanda came to TVS and I got to have many more memories filled with love, laughter and maybe some anger in our teens...but she was a role model to us all, full of light and love."

This tribute was added by Lewis Wall on 16th July 2013

"I am struck in reading the tributes how she was in attendance at the birth of so many of our children. She came in to Harris, off duty of course, the night/morning our first child was born in 1984. She was such a comfort and made sure all was being taken care of as it should.
Charlotte, you touched so many lives, and you will be missed so much. God bless your soul. Lewis"

I'm going to miss watching action movies, eating hummus or sitting on your back porch watching the birds.  You taught me so much, and I can't believe I can't just pick up the phone and talk to you whenever I want.

"In life, I owed Charlotte a debt of gratitude that no amount of words or love between us could ever be re payed by me.  She helped me co parent Rachel, Charlotte Lee and Amanda. We quickly realized if we put the kids 1st, we couldn't go wrong. We became very close and joked once that we could be on Oprah.  I grieve for my girls, Jason, Marsha, Noel, myself and all those who loved her."
