Irene, Charlie, Paul, and Elizabeth,

Was hoping to pass my sincere condolences in person, but came down with a head cold and sinus infection the last few days.
Mom asked that I send on her condolences as well. She has been troubled with severe angina and edema lately.

May the memories of your husband and dad keep your heart filled with enough joy to keep the sorrow at bay.

Hi Irene and all,

It has been such a long time since we’ve all connected but funny how the face in the picture is the exactly the same as I remember it when I was a little girl and the Quinton clan would come by to visit. He always made me smile and always had a smile. I’ll never forget that or him…

Sending love and blessings your way and my sincere condolences to you, Charlie, Paul, and Elizabeth at this difficult time.

Dear Irene, Charlie, Paul, Elizabeth and your families,

We are so sorry to hear of Ches’s passing. We pray that time and fond memories will bring you comfort and peace. Sending much love to you all.

I worked with Ches for almost twenty years, until my family and I relocated to NS.. Ches was a bright light, always happy, and upbeat. When I think of him, I cant help but smile. At Ches’s own retirement dinner, he singled out each co-worker there, and said something special to each person. This says so much about who he truly was!
A favorite saying of Ches’s was that he grew his hair on government time, therefore he could get it cut on government time..

Please accept our sincere condolences on his passing.
