    We will miss our long time neighbor and friend. My parents Syl and Gert Wojtkowiak were best friends since she moved to Gaylord. They would exchange garden harvests and see the wonderful flowers she grew in her back yard. They would also look after each other, Charlotte would look after their house and mail when they were on vacation. We would always see her mowing the lawn and trimming her shrubs. Mom and Charlotte went to the same hair dresser located in Vanderbuilt. They and my brother would exchange birthday cards and gift cards. They also would sometimes go out to eat together on those occasions. After my parents passed away my brother Eugene would continue taking vegetable to her from his garden, delivering birthday cards, and chats across the street. She adored her little adopted cat. As time went on she had to give up driving and sold her car. We didn’t to see her much the last few years but knew her nephew checked on her every day. When I came up every summer I would try to visit her. I will miss those days. Good Bye Charlotte our dear friend.

    Charlotte was a very sweet lady. I loved to see her every week when she would come to get her hair done. She will be missed but not forgotten. RIP my dear friend.
