Charlotte Helen Bacon is the beloved daughter of Joel and JoAnn Bacon and sister of Guy Bacon. She died tragically on December 14, 2012 with her friends and classmates at Sandy Hook Elementary School. Charlotte was an extraordinarily gifted six year old who filled her family each day with joy and love. The family will forever remember her beautiful smile, her energy for life, and the unique way she expressed her individuality, usually with the color pink. Charlotte never met an animal she didn’t love and since the age of two wanted to be a veterinarian. She also enjoyed practicing Tae Kwon Do weekly with her dad and brother where she relished kicking and throwing punches!
Charlotte has left a place in her entire extended family’s hearts that will never be replaced. The family is profoundly grateful for the thoughts and prayers of the many friends around the world who have expressed their sympathies. They trust in the depths of God’s grace and with confidence know that Charlotte rests in God’s arms.
The family asks that the media please respect their privacy at this time.
Joel, JoAnn, and Guy Bacon.
