Charlotte and Harry looked forward to packing up their van for weekend trips, heading south, with the boat in tow to fish the Potomac and Seneca rivers and camp at Edward’s Ferry. Their children and grandchildren were always excited to go and fish, enjoying her delicious picnic lunch and fun times with grandma and grandpa.
