  1. A very special lady she was. You always knew where she stood with the Gospel. She was a dear friend of my parents. I always felt welcome in her home. God bless Charlotte, Jesse and family.

  2. Thank you to everyone who has cared for “Grandma” over these years since Grandpa made the transition to Heaven. She was the rock of the family. The earth has lost a great, strong woman, but she is back with Grandpa.

  3. My love and deepest sympathy to this family. Our friendship goes back for many years, and Mrs. Skinner’s loss will be sorely felt. May God shed his mercy and love on all of you.
