Sent with the hope that the support of family and friends is making this difficult time of loss and transition a bit easier for you, Sue and your family. You have lost a 'good soul' indeed. A donation will be made to YAK, a local youth at risk support organization in Charlie's name. Win sends her condolences along with mine.

Hello, I don't know any of you, but I did know Mr.Ancrum. My daughter, Emily K Moreau, attended woodland elementary in pre-kindergarten n 1988. Mr. Ancrum went above and beyond for my daughter, he had her tested at the then PSPGM. He got a mentor that worked with her twice a week. He told me that he had never met a child as bright as her. He was an incredible principal. My daughter was quite sad to hear of his passing. She is now a 33 year old mother of two, a but she remembers Mr. Ancrum quite fondly. He would be happy to know that she is very successful. He was the beginning of that. Please accept our deepest condolences. Please have some solace in knowing how many young lives he affected.

I am thinking of you all and wish I was there to share in this celebration of Uncle Charlie's life. He was a wonderful man with a great laugh. I have a great memory of Uncle Charlie and Dad (John) laughing together so hard they were both crying (probably about something silly like Kenneth peeing in the rain water at Manitou).

We are sending big hugs and lots of love to you all. May Charlie rest in peace and live forever in your memories.
Carolyn, Michael, Jordan and Jessica
