Philip, I am very sorry for your loss . Deepest sympathies.

My Condolences to Charlene’s family. We were good friends long ago in Old Perlican when she visited her grandparents We kept in touch through the years. We were often mistaken for sisters because of our red hair. So sorry I am not in St. Johns to go to her funeral. We always enjoyed our time spent together. Sincerely Phyllis (Goobie) Beckett
