    I just want to tell you how proud it made me to listen to such a neat story of my favorite Aunt Charlotte Maddock. My cousins in Florrisant emailed me to tell me how to hear this and as soon as I could get home from work I turned my computer on to find out about this. Charlotte Maddock was very loved and is missed immensely We loved having her around from the time we were all very little till we became adults. She was so much fun and we learned so much from her. Her own father was a teacher & principal and her mother-in law (my grandmother) was a teacher. Her husbands sister, my mother was a teacher also. It was a great adventure with all of those educators around, we were very privileged to have them all with us and I don’t know anyone who didn’t love them. I am so proud of my Aunt Charlotte for inspiring someone to seek out their dream and do so well. I’m sure he wasn’t the only one, there are probably many out there. Thanks for doing this story.
