    I will miss Charles very much. All of his stories and adventures with his job and hockey! He adored my kids adventures in sport! My heart was saddened to hear this news.

      Hi Jenn, My father appreciated not only the great treatments you provided to keep him mobile for the 11 years he lived in North Vancouver, but also the conversations that the two of you engaged in about your family and his exploits. Your friendship with my father was greatly appreciated. Thank you.
