LA, Bomber, Richard,
I have such fond memories of visiting the Soo and your folks. Every am saw Mr. “C” at the kitchen table and Mrs. “C” standing at the sink, both drinking perked coffee (really strong perked coffee!!). Talking to them was like talking to my own folks, and I shall miss Charlie like I miss my own dad. He was a good one!! My heart is with you all.......Judi

Dear Families of Charlie, so sorry for your loss! It was a treat to have met Charlie! Lee Ann has shared many anecdotes with me about him and what he was up to over the last number of years. I listened with pleasure. May you find peace and comfort in each other’s company and sharing all of the memories of his life. Sincerely, Kathy and Ian McConnachie, Carney McConnachie and Tamara Eddison
