In the early 1970’s she became a born-again Christian and began a 45+ year relationship with Christ and raised her children to know that there was a God in Heaven that loved them. She enjoyed being a member of the Word of Faith Church Choir for a time, and later also worked several years as a phone prayer minister for Christian ministries in the DFW area. Charlotte loved Christmas, bison, and growing roses. Inside her home was decorated with many bison pictures and figurines, and she was content to have her Christmas tree up all year long.

In the late hours of Monday night, November 09,2020, Brad found a peaceful, shallow place to cross the river Jordan. He felt no pain as Jesus took his hand and lead him into the presence of GOD.
Service: 2:00pm Friday, November 13, 2020 at Pioneer Drive Baptist Church with visitation prior to service at 1:00pm, 4034 W Pioneer Dr., Irving, Tx 75061.
He was born October 13, 1959 to Henry and Naomi Ritter in Oak Cliff, Texas. His Sister, Renetta was a large influence on his life. They were a happy family growing up in Pioneer Drive Baptist Church. Brad had a hard life but faced it all with power and grace. He will be remembered for his kindness, sensitivity and optimistic attitude for life and living.
Brad was a fun-loving man. We found this on his Face book page; “I am old, and I realize I still have so many unanswered questions!!!! I never found out who let the Dogs Out...where's the beef...how to get to Sesame Street... why Dora doesn't just use Google Maps...Why do all flavors of fruit loops taste exactly the same......why eggs are packaged in a flimsy paper carton, but batteries are secured in plastic that's tough as nails...why women can't put on mascara with their mouth closed... why "abbreviated" is such a long word... why lemon juice is made with artificial flavor yet dish-washing liquid is made with real lemons... why they sterilize the needle for lethal injections... and, why do you have to "put your two cents in" but it's only a "penny for your thoughts" where's that extra penny going ... why do The Alphabet Song and Twinkle Twinkle Little Star have the same tune... why did you just try to sing those two previous songs... and just what is Victoria's secret? He was a loving son, brother, grandson, uncle, and friend. His mother said he was a ‘mamma’s boy’.
