My deepest sympathy on the death of this wonderful man, yet joyful in the knowledge that he is reunited with the love of his life and begins eternity with the God he loved so much.
I got to know Charlie in my capacity as Chaplain at Kensington Village. Charlie would visit Mary often and was a member of our Caregivers/Family Support group. As usual Charlie offered probably more help than he received... That's just the kind of person he was. Charlie also led a few Church Services, reminding everyone of God's unending love.
I feel blessed to have crossed paths with Charlie. May fond memories of him ease your sorrow.

We look back on our many times together in matter pertaining to Rowntree Memorial United Church. Reverend Scott was always the pleasant and positive member in the church and sought out amicable solutions for all concerned. We'll miss his smile but remember all he has achieved to advance the well-being of so many.
