We would like to thank the staff at Stuart Nechako Manor in Vanderhoof BC for making her last years enjoyable and comfortable. In loving memory we would like to dedicate this poem as a reminder of Charlotte and her beautiful life:
I’d like the memory of me
to be a happy one
I’d like to leave an afterglow
Of smiles when life is done,
I’d like to leave an echo
Whispering softly down the ways,
Of happy times and laughing
Times and bright and summer days,
I’d like the tears of those who grieve,
To dry before the sun,
Of happy memories that I leave
When life is done
Sadly missed but never forgotten!
