I got to say my good-bye on Saturday. Charlotte was a dear friend. I will miss her stories of the farm and growing up German and all her German pharses. I am glad she got to celebrate Christmas in Heaven. I loved her alot and will miss her. My sympathy to Judy and all the grandkids.

To Charlotte's Grandchildren: Amanda, Alicia, Natasha, and John. My thoughts are with you and your families in this time of loss. Because of Grandma Hopp and her children, you all came to be. For this, I am grateful. While I was not close with Charlotte, thru family, she helped to provide the opportunity for me to come to know each of you. Grandma Hopp gave me a very special and irreplaceable gift. The gift of your friendship.
