Charity fought a courageous battle with ALS (or Lou Gehrigs Disease). Now free from her illness, she can walk, run, dance, write, draw and hug all her loved ones. She can express herself fully in every way shape and form that she desires. We are happy for her but she will be sorely missed by her family and many friends. She touched all of our lives in so many ways. We love you Charity!
