I traveled the reverse career path from Charlotte. I started as a news reporter and then went into teaching, where I've now been for 15 years. However, I wouldn't have experienced the success I did as a news reporter without Charlotte's kindness. We worked for different papers, but she took this cub reporter under her wing on several occasions, not worrying about sharing contacts or missing out on an exclusive. I suppose the teacher in her never left. She wanted me to be a responsible journalist with an understanding of the important role the media plays in the knowledge base of the community. I hope she knew how much I appreciated these small gestures.

The night we spent together...
In January 1972 I created and started WINC Radio’s “All Night” Show. Prior to this the station signed off-the-air at midnight. I attribute much of the popularity and success of the show to Charlotte. She came to the studio during my show and after several hours of taking notes, wrote a very complimentary ¾ page article for The Northern Virginia Daily Newspaper. I still have and cherish the article and am thankful for the night she spent with me.

Charlotte made a great impact on my life. Her selfless generosity led her to come to the aid of a young pregnant woman who was existing in poverty and in a dangerous living situation. Charlotte took her into her own home and initiated a network of people to give her assistance. Eventually I became part of that network and the young woman and I became best friends. That woman, more than a year later became my wife and the love of my life. We enjoyed forty-four years of an extended honeymoon until my wife’s death last year. As attested in the other memorials, there are many others whose lives have been blessed by having known or been influenced by Charlotte. I know she has been greeted by the words, “Well done, thou good and faithful servant.”

What a loss. Miss Eller was my senior English teacher at James Wood. She was always thoughtful and encouraging. I admired and respected her because she cared, and things mattered to her. She was indeed "one of a kind".
Later, I would see her occasionally when I worked downtown, when the NVD office was in that old stone building on Boscawen St., and she always stopped to say hello. I will miss her.
