    Charles and I were good friends, we met at Scarboro and talked about almost everything…especially Charles’ big dreams for seniors, for Scarboro and for friends.
    We’ll miss him but realize he’s doing his big dreams higher up!

    Charles became known to us at an early age. He was actually friends with our dad for a long time. And in his later years loved to have coffee and pie and just some friendship. Our condolences go out to the family of Charles and May He Rest In Peace after the eventful life that he had.
    Best Regards
    Larry & Sandra Hofer
