    Claire and I will always think of Charlie when we pick up the shuffleboard cues. He always played to win and would disarm you with that gentle sense of humour. We miss him.

  12. Sorry for your loss. Charlie was a kind man with a wonderful smile. I always knew spring was around the corner when Fay and Charlie would return from the States. However, also knew there would be at least one more snowfall for all of us to enjoy upon their return.
    Sending you all a hug.
