  1. The Gose Children, neighbors and daily mail/newspaper deliverers to Mr. and Mrs. Dick (we call them Aunt C and Uncle D) would like to share their thoughts and condolences:

    Annagail (age 10) “She’s nice because she shares her popsicles with us, and she’s ok with us missing days on our job. She was always happy to see you.”
    Mitch (age 13) “She was a nice lady that cared a lot about us, and loved to visit with us whenever she could.”
    Jake (age 11) “Aunt C was one of my favorite people to visit all the time.”

    The Gose family is very saddened by this sudden event, and will miss Aunt C. Our condolences to the family, and especially Uncle D, and their dogs, whom she loved SO very much.

  3. Duane

  4. I’m so sorry to hear of Aunt C’s passing. I have many fond memories of her as a child – going out to eat, visiting at your home and ours. She was a wonderful aunt and will be greatly missed. It is with great comfort that she is with the Lord and her mother. I am praying for her and you.

  5. Duane, Sheena and I extend our condolences to you and your and Charlotte’s families. The closeness that you two have was very apparent to us during our visit a while back. You will have a hole in your heart, but our wish is for you be as strong as Charlotte would be for you. Good luck in your healing period.

  6. Duane,
    The service for Charlotte was beautiful and most appropriate for her. She was
    such a sweet & caring person who had a positive influence on all who came
    in contact with her. You were the light of her life!
    I pray that God will fill your empty heart with His comfort, peace and hope.
    I am so blessed that God allowed my life’s journey to include Charlotte.
