Sympathies to the boys. Your Mom and Dad were wonderful people... part of the fabric of Assiniboia. I will always remember our Mom speaking so fondly of Charlotte. Take care.

I was saddened to learn of your mother's passing and extend my condolences to Mark, Rick, David and your families.
My family and the Radu's were neighbours for decades and for many years as kids, Mark and I were best friends. Before her passing in 2017, my mother Marjorie and Charlotte also both lived at Prairie Villa and then at Ross Payant Nursing Home. So, whenever I visited my "first" mom, Marjorie, I also tried to see my "second" mom, Charlotte. In the latter years, Charlotte had long since forgotten my name but somehow her recognition and love showed through the glint of her eyes and smile on her face.
Mark, Rick and David, I have so many great memories of your mom. The many summer barbecues with Chuck and Gug and countless sleep-overs in that musty old army tent on the cots from Mush and Pit. Your mom's delicious cooking - that apple plachincta (which was like having dessert for the main course) and the poppy seed Easter bread were always wonderful. But to be honest, I never did develop a taste for her mamaliga.
Her laugh and quick wit, especially on Saturday afternoons when her farmer friends would drop by for a few gins and lemonade. The generosity and love she always showed in treating my like one of her own. The annual trips to the Wood Mountain stampede. And her never getting too upset with the protestant kid who always tried (and often succeeded) to trick Mark into eating candy during lent.
You were truly blessed to have Charlotte as you mom. She will always have a special place in my heart and I will remember her often and fondly.
