Charlotte was a diehard Ravens fan.  She never missed watching a game.  She would cheer and yell at the TV as if they could hear her.  She also loved the music of Carrie Underwood.  Her favorite song by Carrie was Jesus Take the Wheel.  She was a member of Carrie’s fan club and in 2016 was chosen to meet Carrie.  She was so excited that she lost the picture she was going to have Carrie sign.
