My Uncle Charlie has passed away after a brief illness. He and my Aunt Pauline were married for 55 years and were hardly separated in all those years.
They met while both were very young, he being in the US airforce and she being a young woman living in Canada. He would walk miles, across the US/Canada border whenever he had leave and would walk to my grandmother's house to court my Aunt Pauline. My grandmother fed him well and was sure that was why he was always showing up on her doorstep!
He was much loved by all of us who have known him in this family, and he left love wherever he went. He will be sorely missed by his six children, many grand children, but most of all, my Aunt Pauline.
We, that knew him were blessed....
