Shared tributes of Charlotte Guffin’s demise

Bethany Gaines Golding – “If you knew Charlotte Guffin, you truly loved her. I am thanking the Lord today that I had the privilege of knowing her since the day I was born. She’s the mom of one of my dearest friends, and consequently is like a second mom to me. My childhood is full of the sweetest memories with her. She made everything an adventure—from sleepovers, to beach trips, to Taco Bell at 2 am. Her mantra that I still remember is that “only boring people get bored” ☺️. She was the opposite of boring. She brought the party wherever she went! She had this incredible gift of making time stand still and really loving the person in front of her. She savored moments with family and friends, and she lived in a way that reminds me that stopping to really see people and to really love them is always more important than sticking to a tight schedule or marking things off of the to-do list. She was pure joy to be around. She found beauty in the day-to-day moments, and she was honestly one of the happiest people I’ve ever known. Her secret to exuberant joy didn’t lie in circumstances at all, but in Jesus Christ. She wanted everyone to know HIM……And you can’t talk about Charlotte without mentioning her amazing voice. I grew up hearing her sing at church, in her home, and I even got to walk down the aisle on my wedding day to her singing “He’s Always Been Faithful.” I can only imagine the way that she is worshiping our Savior now, with undoubtedly, the most beautiful voice in all of heaven….I love you, Charlotte Walden Guffin!!! Thank you for living a life well lived!”

Larissa Conway – “My friend Charlotte went to see Jesus this morning. While I’m heartbroken, she is rejoicing.This is her cover page on her FB. It’s truly what she lived.
A small bit of her story from the last two months:
“Charlotte Guffin was diagnosed with metastatic melanoma on September 20th, 2021. The following day, Charlotte underwent surgery at UAB to remove one of six malignant brain tumors. She responded well to surgery and a treatment plan was developed to address the other tumors in her brain, lungs, liver and spleen that would include aggressive radiation surgery followed by immunotherapy. On October 27th, Charlotte was taken to the ER and another surgery was performed to remove another brain tumor that was bleeding. Like the warrior that she is, Charlotte again came through this surgery successfully and went home to await starting immunotherapy to continue with her aggressive treatment plan. On November 7th, two days before her immunotherapy was to begin, Charlotte was once again rushed to the emergency room, but this time the bleeding tumor was on the brain stem and thus inoperable. The effects of this caused Charlotte to have a hemorrhagic stroke. She was placed in the NICU in palliative care with her amazing four children, Abbie, Grace, Graham and Zac by her side.
When Charlotte was diagnosed on September 20th, I immediately asked the Lord how I should pray. The word I kept hearing in my spirit was simply “miracles,” pray for miracles. I then asked Charlotte how she wanted me to be praying. Without hesitation or to anyone’s surprise, she said “just that God would be glorified.” Since that time, we have experienced miracles and God continues to be glorified. Our phones and social media have been flooded with stories of how God is being lifted up through this – and that is exactly what Charlotte would want – that He would be lifted up.”
To her children, Abbie, Grace, Graham and Zac, you are in my prayers There is no one else like your mom.
“A new song for a new day rises up in me every time I think about how He breaks through for me! Ecstatic praise pours out of my mouth until everyone hears how God has set me free. Many will see his miracles; they’ll stand in awe of God and fall in love with Him!”
Psalms 40 TPT”

Kristen Houchins Wirges – “My newsfeed is flooded this evening with precious memories of Charlotte Walden Guffin If you grew up in Gardendale and/or grew up going to Gardendale First Baptist you knew her. You knew her because of her worship, her way of ushering you to the throne and her servants heart.
I grew up hearing my aunt and cousins always talk about Aunt Charlotte- man they loved her and the stories made you laugh. I was lucky to have a small glimpse into that relationship. When Brian and I were planning our wedding I told my dad I wanted Charlotte. I wanted her to help prepare our hearts before the ceremony through worship and I wanted her to sing as my dad walked me down the aisle to Brian. It’s been nearly 13 years and to this day I can still hear her singing “Praise to the Lord Almighty”.
My eyes fill with tears today as I have recalled that hymn and tried to muster out the words.
Our hearts are broken. We prayed earnestly for a miracle on this side of heaven, but God, in his perfect plan, called you home.
Today you are standing in the Presence of The Lord Almighty. Today you saw heaven. Today you heard “Well done”.”

Jennifer D. Mitchell – “Some have asked me about Charlotte…

I love you my friend. My heart is hurting”

Beth Rogers – “Please cry out to the Lord on behalf of our friend Charlotte Walden Guffin
She didn’t care what your past was or what your financial status was, she loved you with the Father’s love. Never once in the nearly 30 years I’ve known her did she ever fail to speak, hug me or tell me she was praying for me. She needs a miracle for her healing on earth. That’s what I’m praying for however, if God chooses to heal her by taking her home, He’s still good. He’s always faithful.
There are moments in my life, when it’s hard to carry on…. I want to see Heaven”
