My love and, of course, Jim's for Charlie and profound sympathies for Joan and family. Charlie always touched such a special place in the hearts of those who were fortunate enough to know him. A true charmer with kindness, humour and understanding, always available with a skilled helping hand,, he was a wonderful family man admired by his late brother-in-law who shared wonderful stories of their early years at Spear's Dairy.. He seemed invincible and will remain in our memories with love and gratitude.

I remember going to your fathers a few times years ago while working for Stevie, he gave us tomatoes from the garden. Thoughts are with you always!
