My deepest sympathies to you. Charlotte was a lovely woman and I am blessed to have been distantly related to her. My prayers and love to you all.
To all the Harrison family, what a blessing to have known and to have had Bill and Charlotte as our friends. I am glad they are back together again. Charlotte really loved her family so much. Your parents were always trying to help others along and lift them up.They really loved each of you so very much.If any of you need anything while you are in Asheville, please let Mary Dot or me know. We will be in prayer for all of the Harrison family.
Young Harrisons, you won’t remember me but I loved your entire family and lived on Cranford Rd. when you and your parents did. I will never forget each Christmas when I took a family photograph of all of you with Charlotte and Bill…what a wiggly bunch you boys were! I am sad that you have lost your parents, but know what wonderful parents they were to you all. My memories are there of them and my prayers are there for you. Jane Anne Luther
Harrison Family, Bill was in our Lee Edwards Class of 43 and I know your Mom’s Birthplace, Judson, NC is now covered with water by Lake Fontana. Another family member Betty Hipps Delozier was also in the Class of 43. We are never ready to lose our loved ones and our Faith in the Sovereignty of God and the concern of caring friends provide the only comfort. You are in our thoughts and prayers. Joe
Jeff, Tim, Mark, Greg, David and families,
I was sad to learn of the death of your dear mother, Charlotte. I remember fondly the good times I shared at Trinity Methodist with all of you. I especially remember times in Troop 3. Your dad was one of the finest scout leaders I ever knew…and your mom was always there, lending support. Your folks could have had their own scout troop with you and your cousins!
I remember your mother’s pleasant smile and sense of humor. I am sure she was quite proud of each of you.
I hope you can find solace in the knowledge that others care and share in your loss. With the assurances grated to us at the resurection, you know that you will see her again and that she is now reunited with your dad.
Well done, thou good and faithful servant.
DEAR FAMILY, YOUR MOM WAS A SPECIAL PERSON THAT WE ALL ARE GOING TO MISS. HOWEVER, SHE LEFT YOU ALL WITH A SPECIAL GIFT IN KNOWING THAT SHE IS NOW IN THE PRESCENCE OF THE LORD. MAY GOD BLESS YOU ALL, MAC
I loved Charlotte since high school,and I share your sadness at our loss of HER SPARKLE.
My thoughts and prayers are with your family at this sad time, I loved Charlotte so much, she was always so kind and good to me and Mama (Syble Hamilton). I have the fondest memories of her, and always will.
With deepest sympathy & love to all of you. Nancy & William (Willie) Greene and children, Freddie (The Woodlands, TX),Eddie (Friendswood, TX) & Diana Corbett (Wilmington, NC).
Tim and family, I am saddened to hear of your mother’s death but I take comfort with you in trusting her to Christ. May you have a fuller measure of His eternal rest.
Dear Tim and family,
I was sorry to hear about the passing of your Mom. I always enjoyed time spent with Charlotte and the family. She made me feel like one on of boys. I wish blessing to all of you. A Mothers love is not forgotten.
Cathie and I and the girls are so sorry to hear about your Mom’s passing. There are few Mom’s and Dad’s who had the proper perspective on Christ’s life in us, family and Christian Missions. God used them in a phenomenal Supernatural way to encourage me into the ministry in 1973. As a result we were able to start two national and international ministries that turned into the Jesus Film and Executive Ministries of Campus Crusade for Christ. Cathie and I will be praying for you and your families in the months ahead.
Please give us a call whenever you are back in Asheville.

I love seeing this picture of your mom…I don’t remember her without a smile! Your mom and dad were such wonderful people and what an amazing couple. I hope you find comfort in the thoughts of their reunion. Your parents always meant alot to my mom and dad. We will be praying for you in the days ahead.
Dear Jeff and Family,
We’re so sorry to hear about your Mother’s passing. As I told Charlotte, I always remember the few times that I was around her Grandmother, she was always so full of energy and had such a warm and friendly personality. I so enjoyed the times I did get to spend with her. Please know that you are all in our thoughts and prayers.
My Aunt Charlotte’s smile, and what it represented, will always warm my heart. I’m sure that smile is brighter than ever now that she’s together with Uncle Bill. I cherish those two wonderful people and feel so lucky and blessed to have grown up around them.
Dear Harrison family,
We were so sorry to hear of Charlotte’s death. She was such a gentle and outgoing person and her smile and encouragement to others will be sorely missed.
Roy and Virginia Scott
