    My Godmother, Charlotte, was the most generous woman with her time, her thoughtfulness and her love for all of us “Fitch” girls. She was ALWAYS there for us as children and throughout our adult lives. Charlotte and Merle introduced our family to church, to Jesus and to faith. They “walked the walk” as a biblical man and wife and inspired the rest of us to do the same.
    Charlotte was a “another mother” to all of us. She stepped in when we needed encouragement and was not afraid to show you where we messed up but always with love. Most of my family’s best memories were due to the great times with Charlotte and Merle.
    To my Godfamily, Merle Sr., Theresa, Ginnia, Mel and Merle Jr. and families, please accept my deepest, most loving condolences.
    God bless and keep you all,
    Denise Fitch-Baysden N.C.
