We are sorry to hear about the loss of Charlotte Dominique. She was a great fan of our family back in Neligh, Nebraska for many years. We share many good memories of the days Charlotte and her second husband, Gene would come to Neligh to spend the summers to stay with Charlotte’s mother, Minni Curtis. How are you Jeanne?
