We are out of the province right now and unable to visit but were very saddened to learn of Charles’ passing. We did not know him well but always found him to be such a gentle, gracious man. Our heartfelt condolences to you Shirley and all your family.

Aunt Shirley, Charles, Glenn, and families. Thoughts and prayers are with you. Uncle Charlie will be sadly missed as he was a man of extreme kindness. Case in point, he would call me weekly from work during my university days to check in and to see how things were. Uncle Charlie was proud of who was in his life and wanted to share with others what, in life, was significant to him. I am thankful for the days at Catamaran Park, his water ski lessons, the beloved cabin on Roaches Line, the rides in boat, and the phrase that resonated through the woods many years ago of “Go Home!” Uncle Charlie’s voice and strong
presence will not be forgotten. Wishing you much comfort in the next while. You are all in my thoughts. xoxo

Shirley Charles and Glenn our deepest condolences on the passing of Charlie.
