Dink, I am so sorry to hear this, I could always hear and see the very special relationship founded on the love you had for each other and I can only imagine the sorrow and pain you and family are going through..You have been so faithful to share in the
heartaches and pain in our family and I am so sorry I can't be there for you now. but you have been on my heart since I learned of
Charlotte's passing..and I pray the Lord will grant "you that peace that passeth all understanding".
There is a special bond between people that have grown up together, and we share that bond.. I will always remember how you
considered Thomas, your friend. I love you , Janet

Charlotte was my great aunt, but to me she was my other mama. She was my best friend and always will be. We did everything together. Growing up I would always come to Charlottes and Dink’s house on the weekends and every school break I got. Since I’v been born they’ve taken me on soo many vacations; more than I can count. I know there are going to be plenty more to come and Charlotte will be right with us in heart and soul. The family misses you and so does Dink, I, and the pups Bella and Rocky. Please watch over and protect us especially Dink. We love you soo much and know You will always have a special place in my heart. I love you my Beautiful Angel.❤️
