Shirley, Paul and family.  Sorry for the loss of your mother.  She sure put up a good fight but at peace now.  Thinking of you and your family at this difficult time.  Prayers to all of you.

From: Valerie Day
Charlotte was such a committed pray-er ---> for her family, friends, missionaries and the needs of so many.... As I have reflected on her "graduation" to heaven I have wondered, "Who will take her place as intercessor?"  I'm not sure my generation or any who follow have the same vision for or commitment to that high calling of intercession. Larry and I are so grateful to have had our lives touched by Charlotte's prayers,love, and example. "Well done good and faithful servant. Enter into the joy of your master."  Your family is in our thoughts and prayers through these days of sorrow.

From: Howard and Carol Visscher
Ted & Pat, Jackie, Shirley and the whole Smith family.  Our families have been tied together for many many years.  The common thread through it all has been our love for our Lord Jesus Christ.
Since our days at North Waverly Chapel in Sunday School classes and Junior Church I worked side by side with Charlotte to teach children to love the Lord too.  Only glory will reveal all the lives she touched.
May our Lord's promise of life eternal give you comfort at this time as you live life day by day with out Charlotte in it.

With Sympathy; Howard and Carol
