    I am sad to know about Charlotte, and I have wonderful memories of her when she was a student at Thompson High School, and I was her teacher. Of course, I feel the same about her husband during his years there also. My thoughts and prayers are with her family.

    I am sad to know about Charlotte’s passing. It was my blessing to have known and taught her as a Thompson High School. I remember her as a beautiful, intelligent, kind, and successful student. I also feel the same about her husband, Phillip. My heart goes out to this family at this time of loss.
