We grieve along with the Conway family for loss of Charlotte. We also celebrate her home-going, and the joy and peace we know she is now experiencing. And we thank Jesus Christ for the hope He has given us through His resurrection, that someday we who have put our faith in Christ will also join her and our loved ones who have gone before. We are looking forward to the celebration service and gathering of loved ones and friends.
-- Doug Watson, oldest son of Gordon and Eleanor Watson, and Clydene Watson, oldest daughter of Eileen Leonard, who have all preceded their long-time friend Charlotte on to glory

Dear Hubert and Family,
There are not enough words to express from my heart what Charlotte meant to Carolyn and to me and to my boys!!!! She represented everything I ever wanted my family to know in a virtuous woman! The memories in my mind all run together is a magnificent, spell-binding novel of love and joy and humor and spiritual experiences that normal families never experience!!!! Her Godliness reminds me of my favorite poem by James Weldon Johnson--"Go down Death" . Weep not, weep not,
She is not dead;
She's resting in the bosom of Jesus.
Heart-broken husband--weep no more;
Grief-stricken son--weep no more;
Left-lonesome daughter --weep no more;
She only just gone home.
And Jesus took his own hand and wiped away her tears,
And he smoothed the furrows from her face,
And the angels sang a little song,
And Jesus rocked her in his arms,
And kept a-saying: Take your rest,
Take your rest.

Weep not--weep not,
She is not dead;
She's resting in the bosom of Jesus.
I love you all so much!!!!!!! Billy and [Carolyn] Jack and Boys
