    Charlotte (or Sári, as we called her in Hungarian), was a special person, who helped everyone she met and who wanted to change the ills of the world. I do not think she had a bad bone in her, she
    saw the good and positive in everybody.
    We met her in the 1980’s and enjoyed her warm hospitality many times.

    Our warmest condolences to Louis Sr, Louis Jr., Kathy and Peter. Our thoughts will be with you on Saturday.

    Leslie & Marianne Takach, Edmonton

    As friend of both Louis Jr. and Margret Kelemen, we wish to send our sincere condolence to the entire family. As we are half way around the world in Malaysia we can’t attend the funeral but our thought and prayers are with you in this difficult time.

    Yours truly,

    Stan and Peggy Uptigrove

    Yesterday, Cathy and I found ourselves back in North Haven, where we spent 30 years living next door to the Kelemens. When we dropped in at Connie McNeil’s she let us know about Charlotte’s passing. We were so sorry we didn’t know about the service in time to attend and have a chance to give everyone a big hug. Charlotte and Jean had the same interest in birds and spent time watching the many bird species that came to the McCullough’s backyard. Charlotte was a wonderful companion and a great neighbor. All the best and know that we are thinking of you all. Cathy Kurio and Jean McCullough
