Miss Charlotte

Miss Charlotte had grey hair,

smiling face, and legs  bowed with age.

Her eyes twinkled when

she talked about grandbabies.

. . .teary-eyed when she talked

about her husband!

Grew up on a farm,

Tom boy . .

Salt of the earth.

My mentor, my colleague, my friend

She gave me support on days

I felt insecure.

She gave me laughter on days

that smiling was difficult.

We cried when telling family stories . . .

learning life lessons.

Charlotte Muenster!
