I was saddened to hear about Charlie’s passing away. A couple of days after Franco met him in 1971, we invited him on a vacation driving across Canada! We all became such good friends! Charlie weaved in and out of my life for the next 50 years. So many happy memories ... teaching catechism classes, long walks, sharing family meals, trips to the hermitage in Muskoka, sharing letters and so much more. We often chatted about his family in California. My condolences to his family. May you be at peace Charlie. Prayers, love and hugs Eileen Cox

Charlie and I met when he came to Canada as a draft dodger. We travelled together and went to university together. We also went to Israel on a course together. We had lots of discussion around Poverty and community. He was a great friend. I will miss him. My sympathy to his family and his friend Mary. Thank you for all you did for Charlie. May he Rest In Peace. Sr. Georgette.
